Microsoft Windows Object Packager Insecure Executable Loading Vulnerability

-

Description


Parvez Anwar has discovered a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to the way that Windows registers and uses Windows Object Packager. This can be exploited to load an executable file (packager.exe) in an insecure manner by tricking a user into opening e.g. a Publisher file (".pub") containing an embedded packaged object located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.


Solution:
Apply patches.
