Subject: [FD] Executable installers are vulnerable^WEVIL (case 34):
	Microsoft's vs-community-*.exe susceptible to DLL hijacking

Hi @ll,

the executable installer for Microsoft's Visual Studio 2015
Community Edition, available from <>,
is vulnerable to DLL hijacking: on a fully patched Windows 7 SP1
it loads the following DLLs from its "application directory"
instead of Windows' "system directory":
Version.dll, AppHelp.dll, NTMARTA.dll, CryptSP.dll, RPCRTRemote.dll

Additionally it loads API-MS-Win-Downlevel-ShlWAPI-L2-1-0.dll from
the PATH.

See <>
or <> and
for a similar vulnerability.

stay tuned
Stefan Kanthak


2016-06-01    sent vulnerability report to vendor plus US-CERT

              NO RESPONSE from vendor, not even an acknowledgement
              of receipt

2016-06-07    US-CERT tells me that Microsoft informed them that
              they won't act on this report

              still no response from vendor

2016-07-01    report published
