Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Verity Keyview SDK, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

1) The vulnerabilities are caused due to various errors within the file viewers and can be exploited to cause buffer overflows by tricking a user into viewing a specially crafted file.

The following file viewers are affected:
* mifsr.dll
* awsr.dll
* kpagrdr.dll
* exesr.dll
* rtfsr.dll
* mwsr.dll
* wp6sr.dll
* lasr.dll

2) A boundary error in the EML file viewer (emlsr.dll) when parsing "Content-Type" tags can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted EML file containing an overly long "Content-Type" string.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities may allow execution of arbitrary code.


Solution:
Update to version 9.2.0.12 available via the vendor's customer support site.

Further details available to Secunia VIM customers
