Subject: Baidu Soba Remote Code Execute Vulnerability(FGA-2007-10)

hi full-disclosure,

Baidu Soba Remote Code Execute Vulnerability

by cocoruder of Fortinet Security Research Team


    Baidu Soba is a popular browser toolbar which developed by Baidu, a Chinese web search engine company, like Google, more informations can be found at:

    There exists a remote code execute vulnerability in Baidu Soba's ActiveX Control "BaiduBar.dll". A remote attacker who successfully exploit these vulnerabilities can completely take control of the affected system.

Affected Software Versions:

    Baidu Soba 5.4(Version of "BaiduBar.dll" is

    This vulnerability exist in the function "DloadDS()" educed by "BaiduBar.dll", following are some related imformations:

    InprocServer32:	C:\Program Files\baidu\bar\BaiduBar.dll
    ClassID	  : 	A7F05EE4-0426-454F-8013-C41E3596E9E9

    [id(0x0000001d), helpstring("method DloadDS")]
    void DloadDS(
                [in] BSTR bstrUrl, 
                [in] BSTR bstrName, 
                [in] long lShow);

    When we set the parameter "bstrUrl" as a CAB file which can be download via "http" protocol, "DloadDS()" will try to download this file to Windows Internet Explorer temporary directory and try to execute the file named as parameter "bstrName", the key code as follows:

	.text:1006F407                 lea     eax, [ebp-28h]
	.text:1006F40A                 lea     ecx, [ebp-10h]
	.text:1006F40D                 push    eax			; lpProcessInformation
	.text:1006F40E                 lea     eax, [ebp-6Ch]
	.text:1006F411                 push    eax			; lpStartupInfo
	.text:1006F412                 push    esi			; lpCurrentDirectory
	.text:1006F413                 push    esi			; lpEnvironment
	.text:1006F414                 push    esi			; dwCreationFlags
	.text:1006F415                 push    esi			; bInheritHandles
	.text:1006F416                 push    esi			; lpThreadAttributes
	.text:1006F417                 push    esi			; lpProcessAttributes
	.text:1006F418                 push    esi
	.text:1006F419                 call    sub_10004147		; get the CommandLine
	.text:1006F41E                 push    eax			; lpCommandLine
	.text:1006F41F                 push    esi			; lpApplicationName
	.text:1006F420                 call    ds:CreateProcessA

    As we seen, lpCommandLine point to "C:\DOCUME~1\administrator\LOCALS~1\Temp\calc.exe",Because there is no valid checks, the attacker can build a CAB file which included a trojan or spy program and use the function "DloadDS()" for executing it.

Attached File:

    Exploit can be found at the following url, please do not use for attacking.


    Baidu said they have fixed this fault, but infact, the product downloaded from "" is also affected, we strongly suggest user set a Killbit for this CLSID.
