|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 parsing of J2K files. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of user-supplied data, which can result in a read past the end of an allocated object. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code in the context of the current process.
PDF-XChange has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
