Description

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Oracle Outside In. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The flaw exists within the sccfut.dll component which is used by multiple vendors, most notably the Novell Groupwise E-Mail Client. When opening the OOXML formatted mail attachment for preview the process copies the target of a Relationship tag to a local stack buffer. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code under the context of SYSTEM.
