Discovery Status:

Affected Product(s):
Product: PDF Shaper - Software 3.5

Exploitation Technique:

Severity Level:

Technical Details & Description:
A remote buffer overflow vulnerability has been discovered in the official PDF Shaper v3.5 software client.
The buffer overflow vulnerability can be exploited by local attackers to compromise a target system or to 
gain higher access privileges for further exploitation.

The metasploit exploitcode requires the usage of the metabuffer module. The vulnerability is a unicode buffer 
overflow in the host software. The exploit is remotly exploitable and the issue is located on the server-side.

The security risk of the buffer overflow vulnerability is estimated as high with a cvss (common vulnerability 
scoring system) count of 7.9. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires a low privilege system user account 
and no user interaction. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in system compromise by elevation 
of privileges via overwrite of the registers.

Proof of Concept (PoC):
The remote buffer overflow vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without user interaction or low privilege system user account.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.
