Scientific Toolworks Understand 'wintab32.dll' DLL Loading Arbitrary Code Execution
High Nessus Plugin ID 57891
SynopsisA program installed on the remote Windows host is affected by an insecure DLL loading vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Scientific Toolworks Understand installed on the remote Windows host is earlier than 2.6 Build 600. As such, it insecurely looks in its current working directory when resolving DLL dependencies, such as for 'wintab32.dll'.
Attackers may exploit this 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 2.6 Build 600 or later.
