Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in SAP Crystal Reports, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the "CrystalReports12.CrystalPrintControl.1" ActiveX control (PrintControl.dll) when processing the "ServerResourceVersion" property and can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via an overly long string.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in Crystal Reports 2008 SP3 Fix Pack 3.2 (PrintControl.dll 22.214.171.1243). Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Apply a workaround (please see SAP's security note 1539269).
