Test ID:
Title:Foxit PhantomPDF Remote Code Execution And Information Disclosure Vulnerabilities - Oct18 (Windows)
Summary:The host is installed with Foxit PhantomPDF; and is prone to code execution and information disclosure vulnerabilities.
The host is installed with Foxit PhantomPDF
and is prone to code execution and information disclosure vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability Insight:
The following flaws exist:

A remote user can:

- cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

- cause the target user's application to crash. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

- cause a use-after-free memory error by causing a dialog box to pop open repeatedly.

- cause a use-after-free memory error by using objects that have been deleted or closed.

- cause a use-after-free memory error using a control object after it has been deleted within a static XFA layout or using a wild pointer resulting from a deleted object after XFA re-layout.

- cause a use-after-free memory error when processing certain properties of Annotation objects by using freed objects.

- cause a use-after-free memory error or crash when processing PDF documents or certain properties of a PDF form.

- cause an uninitialized object information disclosure when creating ArrayBuffer and DataView objects [CVE-2018-17781].

- cause a memory corruption error when getting a pageIndex object without an initial value [CVE-2018-3992].

- cause an out-of-bounds memory read error when processing the Lower () method of a XFA object.

- trigger a type confusion error when using a null pointer without validation.

- cause an out-of-bounds memory read error and crash when parsing certain BMP images due to the access of an invalid address.

- cause an out-of-bounds memory read error when processing a PDF file that contains non-standard signatures.


- An out-of-bounds memory read/write error may occur when parsing non-integer strings when converting HTML files to PDF files.

- A use-after-free memory error may occur when parsing non-integer strings when converting HTML files to PDF files.

- An out-of-bounds memory read error or use-after-free code execution error may occur when executing certain JavaScript due to the use of the document and auxiliary objects.

- The creation of ArrayBuffer and DataView objects is mishandled.

- The properties of Annotation objects are mishandled.

Vulnerability Impact:
Successful exploitation will allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (use-after-free)
and disclose sensitive information.

Affected Software/OS:
Foxit PhantomPDF version before 9.3 on windows

Upgrade to Foxit PhantomPDF version 9.3 or later.
