PowerArchiver LoadTree() and ReadHeader() buffer overflow
|powerarchiver-loadtree-readheader-bo (31263)||High Risk|
PowerArchiver is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the LoadTree() and ReadHeader() functions in PAISO.DLL. By creating a specially-crafted ISO image containing files with overly long pathnames, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system, if the attacker could convince the victim to open the malicious ISO image.
Upgrade to the latest version of PowerArchiver (9.64.03 or later), available from the PowerArchiver Web site. See References.
