PAC-Designer .pac buffer overflow
|pacdesigner-pac-bo (75698)||High Risk|
PAC-Designer is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking when processing the definition tags in files. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted .pac file containing an overly long string argument, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
