Media Player Classic DLL Hijacking Exploit (iacenc.dll)

 Media Player Classic (iacenc.dll) DLL Hijacking Exploit
 Vendor: Gabest
 Product Web Page:
 Affected Version: (revision 73)
 Summary: Media Player Classic (MPC) is a compact media player for
 32-bit Microsoft Windows. The application mimics the look and feel
 of the old, lightweight Windows Media Player 6.4 but integrates
 most options and features found in modern media players. It and
 its forks are standard media players in the K-Lite Codec Pack and
 the Combined Community Codec Pack.
 Desc: Media Player Classic suffers from a dll hijacking vulnerability
 that enables the attacker to execute arbitrary code on a local
 level. The vulnerable extensions are .mka, .ra and .ram thru iacenc.dll
 gcc -shared -o iacenc.dll mplayerc.c
 Compile and rename to iacenc.dll, create a file test.mka or any of the
 above vulnerable extensions and put both files in same dir and execute.
 Tested on Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3 (EN)
