Description


A vulnerability has been discovered in Adobe Dreamweaver, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to the application loading libraries (e.g. MFC90LOC.DLL and dwmapi.dll) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries by tricking a user into e.g. opening a CSS file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 version 11.0 Build 4916. Other versions may also be affected.
