Foxit Reader < 5.4.3 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 5.4.3. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in how
dynamic-link library (DLL) files are located and loaded, specifically
file fxdecod1.dll. The application uses a fixed path to search for
this file, and the path can include directories that may not be
trusted or under the user's control. A local attacker can exploit this
issue, via a crafted Trojan horse DLL file injected into the search
path, to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
