GOM Encoder .srt file buffer overflow
|gomencoder-srt-bo (49252)||High Risk|
GOM Encoder is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the Preview/ Set Segment function. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted .srt subtitle file containing an overly long text field, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
No remedy available as of August 1, 2014.
