Orbit Downloader URL conversion buffer overflow
|orbitdownloader-url-bo (41649)||High Risk|
Orbit Downloader is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking when converting URL strings from ASCII to Unicode. By persuading a victim to initiate a download with an overly long URL string, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of Orbit Downloader (2.6.5 or later), available from the Orbit Downloader Web site. See References.
