Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in ZipGenius 18.104.22.1688 and 22.214.171.1241, and other versions before 126.96.36.1990, allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via (1) a ZIP archive that contains a file with a long filename, which is not properly handled by (a) zipgenius.exe, (b) zg.exe, (c) zgtips.dll, and (d) contmenu.dll; (2) a long original name in a (a) UUE, (b) XXE, or (c) MIM file, which is not properly handled by zipgenius.exe; or (3) an ACE archive with a file with a long filename, which is not properly handled by unacev2.dll.
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
