2. Technical Description
PDM files are used to store essential information about a Photo DVD
Maker Professional Project (in XML format). The software performs
inadequate check for the length of a File_Name tag. This results in a
critical buffer overflow error when set with an overly long value.
In order to exploit, a hacker might create a specially crafted “.pdm”
file and trick users into using it. If successful, hackers can perform
local attack, inject viruses, steal sensitive information and even take
control of the victim’s system.
Rating this vulnerability high severity and due to the fact that the
vendor hasn’t released any patch against this vulnerability, Bkis
recommends that users should not open any untrusted PDM file.
