Zero Science Lab has reported a vulnerability in SciTools Understand, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application loading 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 an Understand Project (.UDB) file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.
The vulnerability is reported in version 2.6 build 598. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 2.6 build 600.
