Flv Player 2011 v1.3 – DLL Injection/Code Execution

A local dll injection vulnerability has been discovered in the official FLV Player software. The issue allows local attackers to inject code to vulnerable libraries to compromise the process or to gain higher access privileges.

Vulnerable Software:
[+] FLV Player

Vulnerable Libraries:
[+] wintab32.dll

Date of Discovery:


Exploitation Technique:


Platfom Tested:

Windows 7

Solution – Fix & Patch:

1/ Whenever possible, use a full path when loading a library.
2/ Delete the current directory from the search path by using ‘SetDLLDirectory;’
3/ Do not use ‘SearchPath’ to locate a library. ‘SearchPath’ was not intended to search for libraries to load into the application’s process space and uses an unsecured search order.
4/ Do not attempt to load libraries only to identify the version of Windows. Instead, use ‘GetVersionEx’ or a similar function offered by the Windows API.

Levels Risk :

Proof of Concept (PoC):

The dll hijack vulnerability can be exploited by local attackers with restricted system user account and without user interaction.
