This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Motorola Scanner SDK. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file. The specific flaw exists within the IOPOSScanner Open method which performs an unbounded string copy operation into a fixed-length stack buffer using attacker-supplied input. A remote attacker can leverage this to execute arbitrary code under the context of the browser process.
