According to Delta Electronics, the following versions are affected:
o CNCSoft ScreenEditor Versions 1.00.89 and prior
3.2 VULNERABILITY OVERVIEW
3.2.1 HEAP-BASED BUFFER OVERFLOW CWE-122
Multiple heap-based buffer overflow vulnerabilities may be exploited by
processing specially crafted project files, allowing an attacker to remotely
execute arbitrary code. There is a lack of user input validation before copying
data from project files onto the heap.

Natnael Samson (@NattiSamson) working with Trend Micro Zero Day Initiative
(ZDI) reported these vulnerabilities to NCCIC.
Delta Electronics recommends the following:
o Update to the latest version of ScreenEditor, Version 1.00.94 .
o Delta Electronics also recommends users restrict the interaction of the
application to trusted files.
NCCIC recommends users take defensive measures to minimize the risk of
exploitation of this vulnerability. Specifically, users should:
o Minimize network exposure for all control system devices and/or systems,
and ensure that they are not accessible from the Internet .
o Locate control system networks and remote devices behind firewalls, and
isolate them from the business network.
o When remote access is required, use secure methods, such as Virtual Private
Networks (VPNs), recognizing that VPNs may have vulnerabilities and should
be updated to the most current version available. Also recognize that VPN
is only as secure as the connected devices.
NCCIC reminds organizations to perform proper impact analysis and risk
assessment prior to deploying defensive measures.
NCCIC also provides a section for control systems security recommended
practices on the ICS-CERT web page. Several recommended practices are available
for reading and download, including Improving Industrial Control Systems
Cybersecurity with Defense-in-Depth Strategies .
Additional mitigation guidance and recommended practices are publicly available
on the ICS-CERT website in the Technical Information Paper,
ICS-TIP-12-146-01B--Targeted Cyber Intrusion Detection and Mitigation
Organizations observing any suspected malicious activity should follow their
established internal procedures and report their findings to NCCIC for tracking
and correlation against other incidents.
NCCIC also recommends that users take the following measures to protect
themselves from social engineering attacks:
o Do not click web links or open unsolicited attachments in email messages.
o Refer to Recognizing and Avoiding Email Scams for more information on
avoiding email scams.
o Refer to Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks for more
information on social engineering attacks.
No known public exploits specifically target these vulnerabilities.
