Google Picasa < 3.8 Path Subversion Arbitrary DLL Injection Code Execution
High Nessus Plugin ID 52980
SynopsisThe photo organizer running on the remote Windows host allows arbitrary code execution.
DescriptionThe version of Google Picasa running on the remote host is earlier than 3.8. Such versions insecurely look in their current working directory when resolving DLL dependencies.
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 Picasa 3.8 or later.
