DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported in Cisco Packet Tracer, 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 a PKT
file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is reported in versions 5.1 and 5.2. Other versions
may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Do not open untrusted files.
