Description

The version of the IrfanView FlashPix plugin (Fpx.dll) was found to be less than 4.34. Such versions are affected by a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability that can be triggered by tricking users into opening an .fpx file with a specially crafted FlashPix image that is not properly handled during decompression. Successful exploitation may allow arbitrary code to be executed on the affected host.
