Unreal Engine DLMGR format string
|unrealengine-dlmgr-format-string (45088)||High Risk|
Unreal Engine could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a format string vulnerability. By persuading a victim to connect to a malicious server, a remote attacker could send a DLMGR and WELCOME command using the CLASS or LEVEL parameter and a specially-crafted package containing malicious format string specifiers to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system or cause the application to crash.
No remedy available as of March 1, 2014.
