This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of SolarWinds Server and Application Monitor. 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 'factory' object's loadExtensionFactory method. The issue lies in a failure to validate the size of an attacker-supplied input before copying it into a fixed-size buffer on the stack. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code under the context of the current process.
