TITLE:
FormMax Import File Processing Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA36943

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/36943/

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

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when processing
FormMax import files (".aim"). This can be exploited to cause a
heap-based buffer overflow by tricking a user into importing a
specially crafted ".aim" file.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in evaluation version 3.5. Other
versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Do not import untrusted ".aim" files.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Parvez Anwar
