Description

According to its version, the Foxit PhantomPDF application (formally known as Phantom) installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A memory overflow condition exists in the PDF creator plugin (ConvertToPDF_x86.dll) when converting a PNG file to a PDF file due to an error that occurs when copying a memory block. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (BID 76130)

  • A memory corruption issue exists when opening certain XFA forms. An attacker can exploit this to generate files that crash the application. (BID 76132)

  • A heap corruption issue exists when processing malformed color table data in a GIF file. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this by using a crafted GIF file to execute arbitrary code.

  • A flaw exists when converting a TIFF file to a PDF file due to reading a VTABLE from an invalid location. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this by using a crafted TIFF image to execute arbitrary code.
