Synopsis :

An application on the remote host is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host has a version of Autodesk AutoCAD installed prior to
AutoCAD 2014. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to handling FAS files that
could allow execution of arbitrary VBScript code.
(CVE-2014-0818)

- An error exists related to dynamic library loading.
The application insecurely looks in the current working
directory when resolving DLL dependencies. Attackers may
exploit the issue by placing a specially crafted DLL
file and another file associated with the application in
a location controlled by the attacker. When the
associated file is launched, the attacker's arbitrary
code can be executed. (CVE-2014-0819)
