A vulnerability has been discovered in Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the applications loading libraries (e.g. dwmapi.dll in Adobe InDesign CS5 and reportedly ibfs32.dll in Adobe InDesign CS4) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries by tricking a user into e.g. opening an Adobe InDesign Template (.indt) located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to Adobe InDesign CS4 6.0.6, Adobe InDesign Server CS5 7.0.3, Adobe InCopy CS5 7.0.3, and Adobe InCopy CS4 6.0.6 and confirmed in Adobe InDesign CS5 version 7.0.2 for Windows.
