Any idea if Exploit Protection in Malwarebytes guards against this vulnerability?  I assume it does, but I don't know for certain.  I do know that VLC is among the default media players/applications shielded by Exploit Protection in Malwarebytes 3.

According to Research, VLC says it's not reproducible, so we have no way to know at this time.


[Update 10:30 AM] The VLC CVE on the National Vulnerability Database has now been updated, downgrading the severity of the issue from a Base Score of 9.8 (critical) to 5.5 (medium), with the change log also specifying that the “Victim must voluntarily interact with attack mechanism.”

Additionally, VideoLAN’s public bug tracker now lists the bug report as “fixed” and has closed the thread.
