Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Stack-based buffer overflow in Visual Studio Crystal Reports for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2002 and 2002 SP1, .NET 2003 and 2003 SP1, and 2005 and 2005 SP1 (formerly Business Objects Crystal Reports XI Professional) allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted RPT file.
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.
