SolidWorks Sldimdownload ActiveX Control Arbitrary Code Execution

High Nessus Plugin ID 24912


The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that allows execution of arbitrary code.


The remote host contains a version of the 'sldimdownload' ActiveX control included with SolidWorks' 3D CAD software.

The version of this ActiveX control on the remote host fails to sanitize input to the 'installerpath' and 'applicationarguments' parameters of the 'Run' method. If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into visiting a specially crafted web page, he can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the host subject to the user's privileges.


Update to version or later of the control.
