Memory corruption when Adobe Shockwave Player parses .dir media file


Adobe Shockwave Player is the Adobe plugin to many different browsers to view rich-media content on the web including animations, interactive presentations, and online entertainment.

Adobe Shockwave player does not properly parse .dir media file, which causes a corruption in module IML32.dll by opening a malformed file with an invalid value located in PoC repro02.dir at offset 0x24C0.

This problem was confirmed in the following versions of Adobe Shockwave Player, other versions may be also affected.

Shockwave Player version and older for Windows and MacOS
