  10. CVE-2024-23128: A maliciously crafted MODEL file in libodxdll.dll when parsed through Autodesk AutoCAD could lead to a 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 process.
  11. CVE-2024-23129: A maliciously crafted MODEL 3DM, STP or SLDASM files in opennurbs.dll when parsed through Autodesk AutoCAD could lead to a 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 process.
  12. CVE-2024-23130: A maliciously crafted SLDASM, or SLDPRT files in ODXSW_DLL.dll when parsed through Autodesk AutoCAD could lead to a 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 process.
  13. CVE-2024-23131: A maliciously crafted STP file in ASMKERN228A.dll or ASMDATAX228A.dll when parsed through Autodesk AutoCAD could lead to a 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 process.
  14. CVE-2024-23132: A maliciously crafted STP file in atf_dwg_consumer.dll when parsed through Autodesk AutoCAD could lead to a memory corruption vulnerability by write access violation.

Recommendations

These CVEs impact the import feature in AutoCAD. Fixes for these vulnerabilities will be issued for affected versions in an upcoming release. Product users can take the following steps to mitigate the impact of these vulnerabilities:

  • Avoid using the import feature
  • Disable imports by renaming acTranslators.exe in the AutoCAD install folder. This disables imports of the following file-types: 3dm, abc, CATPart, iges, igs, model, prt, sldasm, sldprt, step, sstp, x_t
  • Import files from trusted sources only

Please refer to this advisory for additional updates to release information.

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.
