Product Name: Wordperfect X3 (13.0.0.565)
Vendor: http://www.corel.com
Date: 28 March, 2007
Author: Jonathan So < jonny [ @ ] nop-art [ dot ] net>
Advisory URL: http://www.nop-art.net/advisories/wpwinX3.txt

I. DESCRIPTION

A stack overflow vulnerability has been found in Wordperfect X3.  The
vulnerability could allow an
attacker to create a specially crafted document to execute abitrary
code when opened by some
user.

II. DETAILS

Wordperfect X3 fails to check the length of the printer selection
(.PRS) filename stored inside
Wordperfect documents, allowing an attacker to cause a stack overflow
in order to execute
arbitrary code.

III. VENDOR RESPONSE

Vendor notified on 26 March, 2007.  Awaiting response.

IV. CREDIT

Discovered by Jonathan So
Additional thanks to Tom Neaves

V. EXPLOIT
