This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Eaton ELCSoft. 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 parsing of an EPC file. The process does not properly validate user-supplied data, which can result in memory access past the end of an allocated buffer. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code under the context of the process.
