Adobe Illustrator Path Subversion Arbitrary DLL Injection Code Execution (APSB10-29)
High Nessus Plugin ID 50988
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains an application that allows arbitrary code execution.
DescriptionThe version of Adobe Illustrator installed on the remote host is earlier than 15.0.2. Such versions insecurely look in their current working directory when resolving DLL and file dependencies, such as for 'aires.dll'.
If a malicious DLL with the same name as a required DLL is located in the application's current working directory, the malicious DLL will be loaded.
SolutionUpgrade to Adobe Illustrator CS5 if necessary and apply the 15.0.2 update.
