Microsoft Exchange calendar attachment buffer overflow
|exchange-calendar-code-execution (25556)||High Risk|
Microsoft Exchange Server could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a heap-based buffer overflow in the Collaboration Data Objects for Exchange (CDOEX) and Exchange Collaboration Data Objects (EXCDO) interfaces. By sending a specially-crafted calendar attachment containing malformed iCal or vCal properties, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and cause the Exchange Server to crash or execute arbitrary code and possibly gain complete control of the affected system.
