The specific flaw exists within the AEXView.ocx ActiveX control. By manipulating a combination of the DisplayImageFile, AnnoLoad and AnnoSave methods, the vulnerable AnnoSave() method can enable an attacker to save arbitrary files in arbitrary locations. The attacker is able to control the file extension and the creation path via a directory traversal issue. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code under the context of the process.
EMC has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
