BE-2021-0007: Out-of-bounds read vulnerabilities in MicroStation and MicroStation-based applications
Bentley ID: BE-2021-0007
CVE ID: CVE-2021-34881, CVE-2021-46596
Severity: 3.3 (low)
CVSS v3.1: AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N
Publication date: 7th December 2021
Revision date: 4th February 2022
MicroStation and MicroStation-based applications may be affected by out-of-bounds vulnerabilities when opening maliciously crafted OBJ files. Exploiting these vulnerabilities could lead to code execution.
The following vulnerabilities related to this advisory were discovered by TrendMicro ZDI: ZDI-CAN-14834 and ZDI-CAN-15390.
Using an affected version of MicroStation or MicroStation-based application to open a OBJ file containing maliciously crafted data can force an out-of-bounds read. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities could help an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current process.
|Applications||Affected Versions||Mitigated Versions|
|MicroStation||Versions prior to 10.16.02.*||10.16.02.* and more recent|
|Bentley View||Versions prior to 10.16.02.*||10.16.02.* and more recent|
Bentley recommends updating to the latest versions of MicroStation and MicroStation-based applications. As a general best practice, it is also recommended to only open OBJ files coming from trusted sources.
Thanks to Mat Powell of Trend Micro Zero Day Initiative for discovering these vulnerabilities.
