http://secunia.com/advisories/28688/

CRITICAL:
Highly critical

IMPACT:
System access

WHERE:
>From remote

SOFTWARE:
IrfanView FlashPix Plug-In 3.x
http://secunia.com/product/17367/

DESCRIPTION:
Marsu has discovered a vulnerability in the FlashPix plug-in for
IrfanView, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to
compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the FlashPix
plug-in (fpx.dll) when processing FlashPix (*.fpx) files. This can be
exploited to cause a heap corruption by e.g. tricking a user into
opening a specially crafted FlashPix file.

Successful exploitation may allow the execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 3.9.8.0 of fpx.dll. Other
versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Do not open untrusted FlashPix (*.fpx) files.
