|CVSS SCORE||7.8, (AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)|
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on affected installations of PDF-XChange Editor. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file.
The specific flaw exists within the createDataObject method. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of a user-supplied path prior to using it in file operations. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code in the context of the current user.
Fixed in PDF-XChange Editor V9 (9.5.368) and V10 (10.0.1)
