(Attachmate Issues Fix for Reflection for Secure IT) Microsoft Foundation Classes May Load DLLs Unsafely and Remotely Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1025628
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1025628
CVE Reference:   CVE-2010-3190   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jun 10 2011
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): Reflection for Secure IT Windows Server version 7.0 to prior to 7.2 SP1
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Microsoft Foundation Classes. A remote user may be able to cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. Attachmate Reflection for Secure IT Windows Server is affected.

Some applications that run on Microsoft Windows operating systems may pass an insufficiently qualified path when loading an external library. A remote user can exploit this by creating a specially crafted DLL file on a remote share (e.g., WebDAV, SMB share). When the target application is loaded by the target user, the application may load the remote user's DLL instead of the intended DLL and execute arbitrary code. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

This type of exploit is also known as "binary planting" or "DLL preloading".

Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsoft Visual C++ are affected.

Impact:   A remote user may be able to cause a target application to execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   Attachmate has issued a fix for Reflection for Secure IT Windows Server (7.2 SP1).
