Multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities exist in the Cisco WebEx Recording Format (WRF) player. In some cases, exploitation of the vulnerabilities could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of a targeted user.
The Cisco WebEx Players are applications that are used to play back WebEx meeting recordings that have been recorded on a WebEx meeting site or on the computer of an online meeting attendee. The players can be automatically installed when the user accesses a recording file that is hosted on a WebEx meeting site.
The Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, and Linux versions of the players are all affected. Affected versions of the players are those prior to client build T26 SP49 EP40 and T27 SP28.
If the WRF player was automatically installed, it will be automatically upgraded to the latest, nonvulnerable version when users access a recording file that is hosted on a WebEx meeting site. If the WRF player was manually installed, users will need to manually install a new version of the player after downloading the latest version.
Cisco has released free software updates that address these vulnerabilities.
