Description


A vulnerability has been reported in multiple Adobe products, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when handling BMP files. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a BMP file having a malformed header.

This may be related to:
SA25023
SA25044

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code via a specially crafted BMP file.

NOTE: Reportedly, the vulnerability can also be exploited when a malicious storage device (e.g. USB drives, cameras) is being attached to a vulnerable computer.

The vulnerability is reported in Adobe Photoshop Album Starter Edition 3.2 and Adobe After Effects CS3. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Do not process untrusted BMP files using the affected applications.
