Gjoko Krstic has discovered a vulnerability in Silo, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application bundling a vulnerable version of the Qt library, which loads libraries (e.g. wintab32.dll) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries by tricking a user into e.g. opening a SIB file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
