Details: http://security.bkis.com/vulnerability-in-flash-slideshow-maker/ 
SVRT Advisory: Bkis-03-2010
Initial vendor notification: 05/31/2010
Release Date: 07/01/2010
Update Date: 07/01/2010
Discovered by: Bui Quang Minh - Bkis
Attack Type: Buffer Overflow
Security Rating: High
Impact: Code Execution
Affected Software: Flash Slideshow Maker < v5.00

2.Technical Description
FSS files are used to store essential information about a Flash Slideshow 
Maker Project (in XML format). The software performs an inadequate check on 
the length of a Photo_Data tag. This results in a critical buffer overflow 
error when this tag set with an overly long value.

In order to exploit this vulnerability, a hacker might create a specially 
crafted ".fss" file and trick users into using it. If successful, hackers 
can perform local attack, inject viruses, steal sensitive information and 
even take control of the victim's system.

3. Solution
Rating this vulnerability high severity and due to the fact that the vendor 
hasn't released any patch for this vulnerability, Bkis recommends that users 
should not open any untrusted FSS file.
