Description


A vulnerability has been discovered in Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due certain MFC libraries loading other libraries in an insecure manner (e.g. mfc90u.dll when loading dwmapi.dll). This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries by tricking a user into opening a file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share in an application linking against the vulnerable MFC libraries.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.


Solution:
Apply patches.
