SynopsisA game launcher application installed on the host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its version number, the Ubisoft uPlay application installed on the remote host is prior to 2.0.4. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the web browser plugin due to improper validation of user-supplied input passed via the '-orbit_exe_path' command line argument. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted website, to execute arbitrary code.
