Oracle Outside In Buffer Overflow

Oracle Outside In Buffer Overflow
Posted Oct 26, 2015
Authored by Secunia, Behzad Najjarpour Jabbari | Site secunia.com

Secunia Research has discovered two vulnerabilities in Oracle Outside In Technology, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and compromise an application using the SDK. An error in the vstga.dll when processing TGA files can be exploited to cause an out-of-bounds write memory access. An error in the libxwd2.dll when processing XWD files can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow. Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities may allow execution of arbitrary code. Oracle Outside In versions 8.5.0, 8.5.1, and 8.5.2 are affected.
