by Thomas Bahn,
assono GmbH, Standort Kiel,


The component to view file attachments has stood out for security issues quite some times. Now there is another one: some more buffer overflows. Again! One might ask, why their aren't using software to find this kind of problem in advance using some of the newer programs built for exaclty this task...

Possible workarounds:

  • wait for the next release... sad.gif
  • order the hotfix
  • deactivate the viewer component (or parts of it)
