6) CVE-2021-27038 - A Type Confusion vulnerability in Autodesk Design Review 2018, 2017, 2013, 2012, 2011 can occur when processing a maliciously crafted PDF file. A malicious actor can leverage this to execute arbitrary code.

7) CVE-2021-27039 - A maliciously crafted TIFF and PCX file in Autodesk Design Review 2018, 2017, 2013, 2012, 2011 can be forced to read and write beyond allocated boundaries when parsing the TIFF file. This vulnerability can be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

8) CVE-2021-40167 - A malicious crafted dwf file when consumed through DesignReview.exe application could lead to memory corruption vulnerability by read access violation. This vulnerability in conjunction with other vulnerabilities could lead to code execution in the context of the current process.

9) CVE-2022-27525 - A malicious crafted .dwf file when consumed through DesignReview.exe application could lead to memory corruption vulnerability by write access violation. This vulnerability in conjunction with other vulnerabilities could lead to code execution in the context of the current proces.

10) CVE-2022-27526 - A malicious crafted TGA file when consumed through DesignReview.exe application could lead to memory corruption vulnerability. This vulnerability in conjunction with other vulnerabilities could lead to code execution in the context of the current process.

11) CVE-2022-27529 - A maliciously crafted PICT, BMP, PSD or TIF file in Autodesk AutoCAD 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019 may be used to write beyond the allocated buffer while parsing PICT, BMP, PSD or TIF file. This vulnerability may be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

12) CVE-2022-27530 - A maliciously crafted TIF or PICT file in Autodesk AutoCAD 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019 can be used to write beyond the allocated buffer through Buffer overflow vulnerability. This vulnerability can be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

13) CVE-2022-27869 - A maliciously crafted TIFF file in Autodesk AutoCAD 2023 can be forced to read and write beyond allocated boundaries when parsing the TIFF file. This vulnerability can be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

14) CVE-2022-27870 - A maliciously crafted TGA file in Autodesk AutoCAD 2023 may be used to write beyond the allocated buffer while parsing TGA file. This vulnerability may be exploited to execute arbitrary code..

*Note: Product list table contents subject to change.

** Note: Users of Autodesk Advance Steel, Autodesk Civil 3D, and the specialized toolsets of AutoCAD need to install either the AutoCAD product update(s) listed above or a more recent product version. These security fixes are not included in the updates specific to individual toolsets.

Recommendations

Autodesk strongly recommends that users of Autodesk Design Review 2018 and earlier download and install the security hotfix referenced above via the Autodesk Knowledge Network. Customers of Autodesk Design Review 2013 or earlier will need to upgrade to version 2018 or later by following the installation instructions outlined in the Autodesk Knowledge Network article.

In addition, users of the 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 versions of Autodesk® Advance Steel, Autodesk® Civil 3D, AutoCAD®, AutoCAD® LT, and AutoCAD-based specialized toolsets listed in the table above should install the latest AutoCAD® or AutoCAD LT, as applicable, via the Autodesk Desktop App or Accounts Portal. An update is not available for 32bit AutoCAD 2019. Customers using this version should plan to upgrade to 64bit AutoCAD 2019 or a newer AutoCAD version as soon as possible to avoid downtime and potential security vulnerabilities.

Customers using previous versions that no longer qualify for full support should plan to upgrade to a supported version as soon as possible to avoid downtime and potential security vulnerabilities. Visit the Autodesk Knowledge Network for more information about previous version support.
