GdPicture Multiple ActiveX Control SaveAsPDF Method Arbitrary File Overwrite

High Nessus Plugin ID 34348


The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that allows overwriting arbitrary files.


The remote host contains the GdPicturePro5S.Imaging or GdPicture4S.Imaging ActiveX control, which is used to manipulate images in a variety of formats.

The version of the control installed on the remote host reportedly fails to validate input to the 'sFilePath' argument of the 'SaveAsPDF' method. If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into viewing a specially crafted HTML document, this method could be used to create or overwrite arbitrary files on the affected system subject to the user's privileges, which could in turn lead to execution of arbitrary code.


Upgrade to GdPicture Light Imaging Toolkit 4.7.2 (with version of the control) / GdPicture Pro Imaging SDK 5.7.2 (with version of the control) or later.
