TeamViewer Path Subversion Arbitrary DLL Injection Code Execution
High Nessus Plugin ID 49176
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains a program that allows arbitrary code execution.
DescriptionThe version of TeamViewer installed on the remote Windows host is earlier than 5.0.9104. Such versions insecurely look in their current working directory when resolving DLL dependencies, such as for 'dwmapi.dll'.
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.
SolutionUpgrade to version 5.0.9104 or later.
