shinnai has discovered a vulnerability in LEADTOOLS JPEG2000, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the LEADJ2K.LEADJ2K.140 ActiveX control (LTJ2K14.OCX) when handling the "BitmapDataPath" property. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by assigning an overly long string to the affected property.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 126.96.36.199 of the LTJ2K14.OCX ActiveX control and reported in version 188.8.131.52. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Set the kill-bit for the affected ActiveX control.
