Autonomy KeyView Applix Document Filter Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
Autonomy KeyView Filter is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because of a failure to properly bounds check user-supplied input.
An attacker can exploit this issue by enticing an unsuspecting victim to open a malicious file or email attachment.
Successful exploits can allow attackers to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.
NOTE: This issue was previously discussed in BID 47962 (IBM Lotus Notes Attachment Handling Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities) but has been given its own record to better document it.
