IrfanView PSD buffer overflow
|irfanview-psd-bo (58548)||High Risk|
IrfanView is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by a sign extension error when parsing malformed PSD images. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted PSD image file, 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 IrfanView (4.27 or later), available from the IrfanView Web site. See References.
