Microsoft Skype 'MSFTEDIT.DLL' Buffer Overflow Vulnerability



Microsoft Skype is prone to a local buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

Attackers can exploit this issue to crash the application, resulting in a denial-of-service condition. Due to the nature of this issue, code execution may be possible but this has not been confirmed.

Microsoft Skype 7.2, 7.35, 7.3.5.103, 7.36.0.101, 7.36.0.150, and 7.36 are vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
