Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Multiple buffer overflows in the ISSymbol ActiveX control in ISSymbol.ocx 188.8.131.52 and 301.1009.2904.0 in the ISSymbol virtual machine, as distributed in Advantech Studio 6.1 SP6 61.6.01.05, InduSoft Web Studio before 7.0+SP1, and InduSoft Thin Client 7.0, allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long (1) InternationalOrder, (2) InternationalSeparator, or (3) LogFileName property value; or (4) a long bstrFileName argument to the OpenScreen method.
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.
