IrfanView .IFF buffer overflow
|irfanview-iff-bo (33946)||High Risk|
IrfanView is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of .IFF files. By sending a specially-crafted .IFF file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash, if the attacker could persuade the victim to open the malicious file.
Upgrade to the latest version of IrfanView Plugin (184.108.40.206 or later), available from the IrfanView Web site. See References.
