Zero day vulnerability in music system rapidly targeted.
Vulnerabilities in Yahoo! Jukebox, a free music-management system provided by Yahoo!, have been exploited by in-the-wild attacks just days after flaws were first disclosed.
Two separate buffer overflow issues in ActiveX controls used by the system were reported on February 2nd and 5th, and attacks exploiting the first have already been seen, with security experts predicting more to come. The second issue may also affect some older version of Yahoo! Messenger software, which include the vulnerable .DLL file.
