This signature detects attempt to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability while processing crafted XMB Files in ACDSee application.
ACDSee products are applications designed to manage and edit digital photographs.
Multiple ACDSee applications are prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability because they fail to perform adequate checks on user-supplied input. Specifically, this issue occurs when processing a malformed 'XMB' (X Bitmap) file.
Successful exploits may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.
