CVE:CVE-2017-8311        0day:Memory Corruption

Description

Infamous VLC/Kodi/PopcornTime subtitle attack in libsubtitle_plugin.dll.
This is the Proof of Concept of the reverse engineered heap corruption vulnerability affecting JacoSUB parsing in VLC/Kodi/PopcornTime.
The crash is exploitable, but hard to exploit because of various environmental constraints such as threading/mitigations/scriptless.
I want to join a research team.
