Corel PDF Fusion XPS File ZIP Directory Vulnerability

Added: 08/08/2013
CVE: CVE-2013-3248
BID: 61010
OSVDB: 94933


Corel PDF Fusion is a software application used to assemble, edit and create PDFs from more than 100 different file types by dragging and dropping them onto the Welcome Screen. It allows adding new text, bookmarks and comments, and also supports multiple file output formats.


Corel PDF Fusion version 1.11 and earlier is vulnerable to a buffer overflow condition as a result of not properly validating user-supplied input when parsing names in ZIP directory entries of an XPS file. An attacker who persuades a user to open a specially crafted XPS file in a vulnerable version of Corel PDF Fusion could execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected user.
