Version Summary:Cisco WebEx WRF Player contains a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system. Updates are available.
 
 
Description
A vulnerability in the Cisco WebEx Advanced Recording Format (ARF) player used in Cisco WebEx Business Suite, Cisco WebEx 11, and the Cisco WebEx Meetings Server could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to crash the Cisco WebEx ARF player, and in some cases execute remote code with the privilege of the logged in user.

The vulnerability is due to a failure to properly validate input from the .arf recording being played. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user to play a specially crafted .arf recording in a vulnerable Cisco WebEx ARF player. This vulnerability cannot be triggered just by attending a WebEx meeting.

Cisco has confirmed the vulnerability in a security advisory and has released software updates.
