Microsoft Visual Basic Company Name buffer overflow
|vb-companyname-bo (34476)||High Risk|
Microsoft Visual Basic is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of Visual Basic Project (VBF) files. By creating a specially-crafted VBP file and persuading the victim to open the project description page and select company name, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges or cause the application to consume all available CPU resources.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
