Cisco WebEx Player buffer overflow
|cisco-cve20123941-bo (79184)||High Risk|
Cisco WebEx Player is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking when parsing WRF files. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted audio data within a WRF file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
