Description

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Panasonic FPWIN Pro. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file.

A specially-crafted project file will lead to the construction of an SCTASK object followed by writes to the object that are outside its bounds. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to attain code execution under the context of the current process.
