Crystal Reports RPT Processing Vulnerability CVE-2006-6133
A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way Crystal Reports
for Visual Studio handles malformed RPT files. An attacker could exploit the
vulnerability by sending an affected user a malformed RPT file as an e-mail
attachment, or hosting the file on a malicious or compromised Web site.
An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the
same user rights as the local user. Users whose accounts are configured
to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users
who operate with administrative user rights.
