Description


Jonathan Sarba has discovered a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the "FindFile()" function of the CFileFind class in mfc42.dll and mfc42u.dll. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow by passing an overly long argument to the affected function.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed on Windows XP SP2/SP3 including mfc42.dll version 6.2.4131.0 and mfc42u.dll version 6.2.8071.0.

The following products are currently known to present attack vectors:
* HP All-in-One Series Web Release software/driver installer version 2.1.0
* HP Photo & Imaging Gallery version 1.1
* PPStream version 2.6.86.8900
* Creative Software AutoUpdate Engine ActiveX Control version 2.0.12.0 (e.g. the "OnInit()" method).

Other versions and applications using the vulnerable library may also be affected.


Solution:
Apply the MS10-074 patch, which silently fixed the vulnerability.
