Foxit Reader < 5.4 Trojan DLL Injection

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A PDF viewer installed on the remote host is affected by an arbitrary
code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Foxit Reader installed on the remote Windows host is
prior to 5.4. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the Facebook
Plugin (facebook_plugin.fpi) due to how dynamic-link library (DLL)
files are located and loaded. A local attacker can exploit this issue,
via a crafted Trojan horse DLL file injected into the current working
directory, to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
