QuarkXPress Word Document Text-Import Font Handling Stack Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

QuarkXPress is prone to a remote stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer.

Remote attackers may exploit this issue by enticing victims into opening maliciously crafted Word (.doc) files.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code within the context of the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial of service.

This issue affects QuarkXpress 7.2 for Microsoft Windows. Other versions may also be affected.
