TITLE:
DivX Player Subtitle Parsing Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA29780

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/29780/

CRITICAL:
Highly critical

IMPACT:
System access

WHERE:
>From remote

SOFTWARE:
DivX Player 6.x
http://secunia.com/product/7910/
DivX for Windows 6.x
http://secunia.com/product/18394/

DESCRIPTION:
securfrog has discovered a vulnerability in DivX Player, which can
potentially be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's
system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the processing
of subtitles. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer
overflow via an overly long subtitle line contained in a malicious
SRT file.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code, but
requires that the user is tricked into opening a specially crafted
SRT file.

The vulnerability is confirmed in DivX Player 6.7 (build 6.7.0.22).
Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Disable the automatic loading of subtitles. Do not open untrusted
subtitles.
