1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
- CVSS v3 7.8
- ATTENTION: Low attack complexity
- Vendor: Fuji Electric
- Equipment: Tellus Lite V-Simulator, and V-Server Lite
- Vulnerabilities: Stack-based Buffer Overflow, Out-of-bounds Write, Untrusted Pointer Dereference, Out-of-bounds Read, Access of Uninitialized Pointer, Heap-based Buffer Overflow
2. RISK EVALUATION
Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to cause data corruption, read sensitive information, obtain code execution, or crash the application.
3. TECHNICAL DETAILS
3.1 AFFECTED PRODUCTS
The following Fuji Electric remote monitoring and operation software products are affected:
- V-Server Lite: Versions prior to v126.96.36.199
- Tellus Lite V-Simulator: Versions prior to v188.8.131.52
3.2 VULNERABILITY OVERVIEW
The affected product is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, which may allow an attacker to achieve code execution.
The affected product is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds write, which can result in data corruption, a system crash, or code execution.
The affected product is vulnerable to an untrusted pointer dereference, which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code and cause the application to crash.
The affected product is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds read, which may allow an attacker to read sensitive information from other memory locations or cause a crash.
The affected product is vulnerable to an access of uninitialized pointer, which may allow an attacker read from or write to unexpected memory locations, leading to a denial-of-service.
Parsing a specially crafted project file may cause a heap-based buffer overflow, which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
