PPLive multiple URI handler code execution

pplive-uri-code-execution (49263) The risk level is classified as HighHigh Risk

Description:

PPLive, when used in conjunction with Microsoft Internet Explorer, could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by improper validation of user supplied input to the synacast://, Play://, pplsv://, and ppvod:// URI handlers. By persuading a victim to click on a specially-crafted URI, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the LoadModule parameter to execute arbitrary code on the system via a .dll file.
