Autodesk Design Review Insecure Library Loading Vulnerability

The vulnerability is caused due to the application loading libraries (e.g. dwmapi.dll, whiptk_wt.7.12.601.dll, xaml_wt.7.6.0.dll) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries by tricking a user into e.g. opening a DWF file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2011 and also reported in version 2010. Other versions may also be affected.

There does not seem to be an update or patch to fix this.
