Release Date: 2009-10-16

CVE ID: CVE-2009-2970

http://www.nsfocus.com/en/advisories/0901.html 

Affected system:
=============
UiTV UiPlayer UiCheck.dll 1.0.0.6 and prior versions
 
Unaffected system:
=============
UiTV UiPlayer UiCheck.dll 1.0.0.7

Impact:
=====
NSFOCUS Security Team discovered a stack buffer overflow vulnerability in
UiPlayer which allows remote attackers to run arbitrary code on user system
by crafting a malicious webpage.

Description:
=========
UiPlayer is a video player provided by UITV. Due to the cooperation with
Baibu and other companies, UiPlayer is integrated into many video players,
such as BaiduX. UiPlayer is embedded into browsers in the form of ActiveX,
and acquires video data in high speed by P2P technique. 

There exists a vulnerability in a component of UiPlayer, which allows attackers
to gain complete control over user's system.

UiCheck.dll in UiPlayer's installation directory is an ActiveX control that
will be loaded in IE. The interface function GetUiDllVersion() provided by
UiCheck.dll will copy the received filename parameter to a buffer of fixed
size. If the filename is over-long, it will trigger a stack buffer overflow.

Workaround:
==========
* Un-register UiCheck.dll by command "regsvr32 /u UiCheck.dll".

Vendor Status:
===========
The vulnerability has been fixed by the vendor in the latest version, available
for download at the vendor's homepage:
