Compression Plus ZOO buffer overflow
|compressionplus-zoo-bo (28693)||High Risk|
The Compression Plus library, used in multiple software products, is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking in the CP5DLL32.DLL file. By creating a malicious ZOO archive and persuading a victim to open or decompress the malicious archive, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system.
