An exploitable vulnerability exists in the object stream parsing functionality of Nitro Software, Inc.’s Nitro Pro 13.13.2.242 when updating its cross-reference table. When processing an object stream from a PDF document, the application will perform a calculation in order to allocate memory for the list of indirect objects. Due to an error when calculating this size, an integer overflow may occur which can result in an undersized buffer being allocated. Later when initializing this buffer, the application can write outside its bounds which can cause a memory corruption that can lead to code execution. A specially crafted document can be delivered to a victim in order to trigger this vulnerability.

CWE ids for CVE-2020-6113

  • The product does not correctly calculate the size to be used when allocating a buffer, which could lead to a buffer overflow.
    Assigned by: nvd@nist.gov (Primary)
  • The product performs a calculation that can produce an integer overflow or wraparound, when the logic assumes that the resulting value will always be larger than the original value. This can introduce other weaknesses when the calculation is used for resource management or execution control.
    Assigned by:
    • nvd@nist.gov (Primary)
    • talos-cna@cisco.com (Secondary)
  • The product writes data past the end, or before the beginning, of the intended buffer.
