SAS Integration Technologies Client ActiveX Stack Buffer Overflow

high Nessus Plugin ID 67129
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote host has an ActiveX control installed that is affected by a stack-based buffer overflow.

Description

The version of the SAS Integration Technologies Client installed on the remote host is affected by a stack-based buffer overflow condition in the 'SASspk.dll' ActiveX control due to improper validation of user-supplied input to the RetrieveBinaryFile() function via the 'bstFileName' parameter. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted file, to cause a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Apply the appropriate hotfix in the vendor's advisory.
