Description


A vulnerability has been discovered in Prof-UIS, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise an application using the library.

The vulnerability is caused due to the "CExtDWM::CExtDWM()" method in ProfUIS290m.dll and in ProfUIS290m-RDE.dll loading libraries (e.g. dwmapi.dll) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries when an application using this library e.g. opens a file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.9.0. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 2.91.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Reported in YLoader by anT!-Tr0J4n.
