LIBSNDFILE.DLL, as used by AOL Nullsoft Winamp 5.33 and possibly other products, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted .MAT (MATLAB sound) file that contains a value that is used as an offset, which triggers memory corruption.
CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
Impact Subscore: 10.0
Exploitability Subscore: 8.6
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: Medium
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows unauthorized disclosure of information; Allows unauthorized modification; Allows disruption of service
To exploit this issue, an attacker must entice an unsuspecting user to use the affected application to open a specially crafted file.
