Norton System Works 'SYMADATA.DLL' ActiveX Control Bugs Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1019753
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1019753
CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-0312   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Apr 4 2008
Original Entry Date:  Apr 2 2008
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 2006, 2007, 2008
Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in Norton System Works in the Symantec AutoFix Tool ActiveX control. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a stack overflow in 'SYMADATA.DLL' and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

If the target user's system allows access to remote shares via WebDAV or SMB, a remote user can cause arbitrary code from the remote share to be executed on the target user's system.

The vendor reports that the ActiveX control can only be scripted from a trusted domain (i.e., a Symantec web site).

The vendor was notified on December 5, 2007.

Peter Vreugdenhill and an anonymous researcher reported these vulnerabilties via iDefense.

Impact:   A remote user can create HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix, available at:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/techsupp/asa/install.jsp

The fixed version is also automatically installed when participating in an online Chat session with Symantec Technical Support.

The fix is not available via LiveUpdate.

The vendor's advisory is available at:
