CRITICAL:
Moderately critical

IMPACT:
System access

WHERE:
>From remote

SOFTWARE:
PEiD 0.x
http://secunia.com/product/4578/

DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported in PEiD, which potentially can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the
parsing of the PE (Portable Executable) import directory. This can be
exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted PE file
containing overly long import library names.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code when a
malicious PE file is opened.

SOLUTION:
Use another product.

Do not process untrusted files unless in a test environment.
