Vulnerability Note VU#103425
Oracle Outside In CorelDRAW file parser stack buffer overflow
Oracle Outside In contains a stack buffer overflow in the CorelDRAW parser, which can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
Oracle Outside In is a set of libraries that can decode over 500 different file formats. Originally written by Stellent, Outside In is now part of Oracle. The Oracle Outside In libraries are used by a variety of applications, including Oracle Fusion Middleware, Guidance Encase Forensics, AccessData FTK, and Novell Groupwise.
Outside In versions 220.127.116.1127 and 18.104.22.16827 and earlier fail to properly handle CorelDRAW data, which is handled by the imcdr2.flt library.
By causing an application to process a specially-crafted .CDR file with the Oracle Outside In library, a remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the vulnerable application. Depending on what application is using Outside In, this may happen as the result of some user interaction, such as single-clicking on a file, or it may happen with no user interaction at all.
