Tan Chew Keong has reported a vulnerability in Adobe Pagemaker, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in MAIPM6.DLL when handling font names in PageMaker (.PMD) files. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially-crafted .PMD file containing an overly long font name.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability affects versions 7.0.1 and 7.0.2.
Solution: Apply updates (see the vendor's advisory for details).
