CVE-2007-6253 - Buffer Errors vulnerability in Adobe Form Client and Form Designer



Last modification



Multiple buffer overflows in Adobe Form Designer 5.0 and Form Client 5.0 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors in the (1) Adobe File Dialog Button (FileDlg.dll) and the (2) Adobe Copy to Server Object (SvrCopy.dll) ActiveX controls.


Adobe Form Designer and Adobe Form Client are prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities.These issues affect ActiveX controls supplied with the applications and arise because the applications fail to bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer.An attacker can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code in the context of an application running the control (typically Internet Explorer). Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.


The vendor released an advisory and patches to address these issues. Please see the references for more information. Adobe Form Designer 5.0 Adobe Adobe FormDesigner 5.0 patch 5.0.5990.2008 Adobe Form Client 5.0 Adobe Adobe Form Client 5.0 patch 5.0.5990.2008 p
