Rating: Highly critical
Impact: System compromise
"ComponentOne SizerOne 8.0 is a four-in-one tool that includes two resizing controls to easily handle both simple and complex sizing. The tabbing control enables you to quickly create notebook-style and Microsoft Outlook-style tabs. And with the parsing control, you can automatically slice and dice strings."
Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in ComponentOne SizerOne, which can be exploited by malicious people to potentially compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused by a boundary error in the included Tab ActiveX control (c1sizer.ocx) when copying tab captions. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow by e.g. adding tabs with overly long captions via the "AddTab()" method.
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
Update to version 8.0.20081.142 of the ActiveX control.
Discovered by Carsten Eiram, Secunia Research.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned CVE-2008-4827 for the vulnerability.
