WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
The software vendor WIBU Systems disclosed vulnerabilities in their product CodeMeter. This product is widely used in the industry for license management and is also embedded in image acquisition software from Leica Microsystems (in product lines LAS X, LAS AF, PAULA, LMD). The ability to exploit the vulnerability is limited to computers connected to a network. In a worst-case scenario, an attacker could cause a denial-of-service condition and attain remote code execution on the PC where the acquisition software is installed.
