SYNTHESIS OF THE VULNERABILITY
An attacker can use a malicious mfc80esn.dll DLL in order to execute code in Microsoft Visio.
Creation date: 12/10/2010
DESCRIPTION OF THE VULNERABILITY
The Microsoft Visio program loads the mfc80esn.dll library when it starts.
However, the library is loaded insecurely. An attacker can thus use the VIGILANCE-VUL-9879 (https://vigilance.fr/tree/1/9879) vulnerability to execute code.
An attacker can therefore use a malicious mfc80esn.dll DLL, in order to execute code in the context of Microsoft Visio.
