Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Stack-based buffer overflow in the EDraw.OfficeViewer ActiveX control in officeviewer.ocx in EDraw Office Viewer Component 220.127.116.11 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via long strings in the first and second arguments to the FtpDownloadFile method, a different vector than CVE-2007-4821 and CVE-2007-3169.
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.
