The details of the vulnerability are as follows:
CVE-2019-7366: A user may be tricked into opening a malicious FBX file which may exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in FBX’s SDK causing it to run arbitrary code on the system.
*Note: Product list table contents subject to change.
Autodesk highly recommends that customers of the affected products obtain and apply the latest Security Fix for their products via the Autodesk Knowledge Network. For third party developers who use the FBX-SDK in their applications or services, Autodesk highly recommends they obtain and apply the latest version of the FBX-SDK from the update source listed above.
Autodesk was made aware of this vulnerability by a third-party security researcher, along with a second vulnerability, that reported against one of our sample/tutorial codes and not the production FBX 2019.5 Software Development Kit. It was related to example sample code not catching an exception; however, the SDK does the correct thing here: it throws an exception. The sample code is not intended to be production code and should not be used as such – to this end, it poses no risk to production environments.
The following CVE has been reserved as a result of the remediation activities. Details regarding the CVE are available here: https://cve.mitre.org
