The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in a 3rd-party compression library's (DUNZIP32.dll) remarkable old, vulnerable version used when handling packed .ZIP documents. InnerMedia DynaZip compression library mentioned is responsible for indexing and displaying operations. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted zipped document. When a specially crafted .zip document containing a file with an overly long filename (a file name or files inside a ZIP) is opened, the application will crash and the attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on user's system (see US-CERT VU#582498 reference). - Detailed description: Affected DynaZip library examined is version from December, 2002, file version 5.0.0.2.

If the situation is as described, updating of the libary on end-users' machines by applying a software update is also needed. >From US-CERT VU#582498: "Impact: If a remote attacker can persuade a user to access a specially crafted zip file, the attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on that user's system possibly with elevated privileges." - Affected versions: The vulnerability has been confirmed in dtSearch Desktop with Spider version 7.10 (Build 7045).
