Synopsis :

A graphic viewer installed on the remote host is affected by multiple
buffer overflow vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host contains a version of IrfanView prior to
version 4.37. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by multiple buffer
overflow vulnerabilities :

stream within GIF files that could lead to arbitrary
code execution. (CVE-2013-5351)

- An error exists in the Thumbnail 'tooltips' feature when
viewing a specially crafted file contained in a folder
named using multi-byte characters in the Thumbnails
window, such as when handling Japanese folder names.
Exploitation of this issue could result in arbitrary
code execution. (CVE-2013-6932)
