Description


Tan Chew Keong has reported a vulnerability in Altap Salamander, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when reading the filename of a PDB file from the debug information included in a PE file. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by e.g. tricking a user into opening a specially crafted PE file including overly long PDB file name information (more than 1000 bytes).

Successful exploitation allows the execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is reported in:
Altap Salamander 2.5 with Portable Executable Viewer 2.02 (English Trial version) and Servant Salamander 2.0 with Portable Executable Viewer 1.00 (English Trial version).


Solution:
Do not open untrusted PE files.
