Security Advisory

1) Memory corruption

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The weakness exists due to multiple integer and buffer overflows in the color management (CMM) functionality within the 2D component. A remote attacker can create specially crafted Web page, trick the victim into visiting it, trigger memory corruption using an image with crafted raster parameters and execute arbitrary code with privileges of the current user.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in arbitrary code execution on the vulnerable system.

Note: the vulnerability was being actively exploited.
