Autodesk Design Review < 2013 Hotfix 2 Multiple RCE

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87766


The remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The version of Autodesk Design Review installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 2013 Hotfix 2. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow condition exists due to improper handling of BMP images. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted 'biClrUsed' value in a BMP file, to trigger a buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8571)

- Multiple buffer overflow conditions exist due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via crafted data in BMP, FLI, and GIF files, to execute arbitrary code.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Apply Hotfix 2 to Autodesk Design Review 2013.

Note that older versions will need to be updated to 2013 before applying the hotfix.
