SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1025630
SecurityTracker URL:
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 PKI Services Manager prior to 1.2
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 PKI Services Manager 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 PKI Services Manager (1.2).

The vulnerable component may also be included in the following other Attachmate products:

Reflection X 2011
Reflection Suite for X 2011
