A vulnerability has been discovered in Intel Threading Building Blocks (TBB), which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the "tbb.dll" loading libraries (e.g. tbbmalloc.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 2.2.013. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Upgrade to version 184.108.40.206.
Provided and/or discovered by: Originally reported in a CORE IMPACT exploit module for Adobe Pixel Bender Toolkit by Core Security Technologies.
