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 repro03.dir at offset 0x24C6.

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

CVSS Scoring System

The CVSS score is: 9
        Base Score: 10

To trigger the problem a PoC file (repro03.dir) is available to interested parts.
