Microsoft Windows GDI "SetDIBitsToDevice()" API BITMAPINFOHEADER Processing biClrUsed Integer Overflow Vulnerability

-

Description


Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an integer overflow error in the "SetDIBitsToDevice()" function within gdi32.dll when processing BITMAPINFOHEADER, which can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via an overly large biClrUsed field.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (ntdll.dll version 5.1.2600.6055 and gdi32.dll version 5.1.2600.5698).
