This attack could pose a serious security threat. You should take immediate action to stop any damage or prevent further damage from happening.
This signature detects attempts to exploit a stack based buffer overflow vulnerability in IrfanView.
IrfanView is an image viewer that supports multiple file formats.
IrfanView JPEG-2000 Plugin is prone to a remote stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer. Specifically, a stack-based overflow can occur when handling the Quantization Default (QCD) marker segment in a specially crafted JPEG2000 (JP2) image file.
Successful exploits allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the vulnerable application. Failed exploit attempts likely result in denial-of-service conditions.
IrfanView JPEG-2000 Plugin 4.32 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
