Autonomy KeyView Lotus 1-2-3 File Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

Risk

High

Date Discovered

November 27, 2007

Description

Autonomy KeyView is prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities. Successfully exploiting these issues could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the application. Multiple applications incorporate the vulnerable KeyView component, so they are also considered vulnerable to these issues. NOTE: These issues are similar to those described in BID 26175 (Autonomy KeyView Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities) but affect a different component.

Recommendations

Do not accept or execute files from untrusted or unknown sources.

Do not open email attachments that originate from unknown users. Accept email attachments only from trusted sources.

Implement multiple redundant layers of security.

Various memory-protection schemes (such as nonexecutable and randomly mapped memory segments) may hinder an attacker's ability to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code.

Run all software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights.

To limit the consequences of a successful exploit, run the vulnerable application with the least amount of privileges required.
Please see the referenced advisories for details on obtaining and applying the appropriate updates.
