Vulnerability Note VU#916896
Oracle Outside In 8.5.2 contains multiple stack buffer overflows
Oracle Outside In versions 8.5.2 and earlier contain stack buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the parsers for WK4, Doc, and Paradox DB files, 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 Microsoft Exchange, Google Search Appliance, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Guidance Encase Forensics, AccessData FTK, and Novell Groupwise.
CWE-121: Stack-based Buffer Overflow - CVE-2015-6013, CVE-2015-6014, CVE-2015-6015
By causing an application to process a specially-crafted 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.
