Affected version:
-----------------
3.60.0128


Summary:
--------
PDF-Saver Technology is a unique new feature of PDF-XChange software
which allows printing jobs to be combined prior to the final PDF file
being generated - (e.g. to join 3 pages of Excel spreadsheet, 5 slides
of PowerPoint presentation and 10 pages of Word document into one PDF
document).


Description:
------------
The PDF Printer Preferences ActiveX suffers from a buffer overflow
vulnerability. When a large buffer is sent to the sub_path item of the
StoreInRegistry function, and the sub_key item of the InitFromRegistry
function, in pdfxctrl.dll module, we get a SEH overwrite. An attacker
can gain access to the system of the affected node and execute arbitrary
code.
