IrfanView FlashPix Plugin < 4.36 Summary Information Property Set Handling Integer Overflow

High Nessus Plugin ID 66784


The remote host has an application installed that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The version of the IrfanView FlashPix plugin (Fpx.dll) was found to be earlier than 4.36. As such, it is affected by an integer overflow error within the 'Fpx.dll' module. The 'Summary Information Property Set' is not properly validated, which could result in a heap-based buffer overflow, allowing an attacker to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade the FlashPix plugin to version (4.36) or later.
