Microsoft Windows MFC Document Title Updating Buffer Overflow

-

Description


A vulnerability has been discovered 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 "UpdateFrameTitleForDocument()" function of the CFrameWnd class in mfc42.dll. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by passing an overly long title string argument to the affected function.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in fully patched versions of Windows 2000 Professional SP4 including mfc42.dll version 6.0.9586.0 and Windows XP SP2/SP3 including mfc42.dll version 6.2.4131.0. Other versions may also be affected.

The following products are currently known to present valid attack vectors:
* PowerZip version 7.2 Build 4010 (when e.g. entering an overly long directory in an opened archive).

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


Solution:
Apply patches.
