Description

The version of Foxit Reader installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 5.0.2.0718. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A flaw exists in how dynamic-link library (DLL) files are located and loaded, specifically files dwmapi.dll, dwrite.dll, and msdrm.dll. The application uses a fixed path to search for these files, and the path can include directories that may not be trusted or under the user's control. An attacker can exploit this issue, via a crafted Trojan horse DLL file injected into the search path, to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application or the user executing the application. (CVE-2011-3691)

  • A boundary error exists in the FoxitReaderOCX ActiveX control in the OpenFile() method due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this, via an overly long string passed to the 'strFilePath' parameter, to execute arbitrary code.
