Foxit Reader Open File Buffer Overflow Exploit

This module exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in Foxit Reader. If an Open/Execute a file action is defined in the PDF file with an overly long file name argument, when the trigger condition is satisfied it will cause a stack-based buffer overflow, because the application tries to copy the file name argument to a fixed-size buffer in the stack without properly checking that the buffer is large enough to hold the file name string.
