-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Symantec Vulnerability Research Security Advisory Advisory ID: SYMSA-2007-009 Advisory Title: RemoteDocs R-Viewer Code Execution and Sensitive Information Disclosure Author: Adam Baldiwn / adam_baldwin (at) symantec (dot) com [email concealed] Release Date: 17-09-2007 Application: RemoteDocs R-Viewer 1.6.2836 Platform: Windows Severity: Remotely exploitable / User access Vendor status: Update available CVE Number: CVE-2007-4750 CVE-2007-4751 Reference: Overview: RemoteDocs R-Viewer is a secure document viewer used by There exists a design flaw in RemoteDocs R-Viewer where code can be executed upon opening the RDZ file without any knowlege or warning to the user. Additionally, temporary files are not properly removed of disk exposing the encrypted data. Details: The problem is due to a design flaw in the R-Viewer application.

Included inside of these temorary directories are the unecnrypted copies of the documents the R-Viewer application has opened in the past.
