An application on the remote host is affected by multiple buffer
The version of the IrfanView MrSID plugin (MrSID.dll) installed on the
remote Windows host is a version prior to 4.37. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities :
- A stack-based buffer overflow exists due to improper
validation of the 'IMAGE' tag. (CVE-2013-3944)
- A heap-based buffer overflow exists due to improper
validation of the 'nband' tag. (CVE-2013-3945)
- An integer overflow exists due to improper validation
of the 'levels' header, which could lead to a heap-based
buffer overflow. (CVE-2013-3946)
An attacker can exploit these issues by sending a specially crafted SID
file, which could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code
See also :
Upgrade the MrSID plugin to version 188.8.131.52 (4.37) or later.
