Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Oracle Outside In Technology, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and potentially compromise an application using the library.
1) An indexing error in the JPG graphic import filter (ibjpg2.flt) when processing the number of components within a progressive DCT-based image (SOF2) can be exploited to reference an invalid memory handle via a specially crafted quantization table selector value.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow execution of arbitrary code.
2) An unspecified error in the Outside In HTML Export SDK component can be exploited to cause a crash.
The vulnerabilities are reported in version 8.3.7.
Provided and/or discovered by: 1) Francis Provencher via Secunia.
It is currently unclear who reported vulnerability #2 as the Oracle Critical Patch Update for October 2012 only provides a bundled list of credits. This section will be updated when/if the original reporter provides more information.
