GalaxyClient version 2.0.28.9 loads unsigned DLLs such as zlib1.dll, libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll and libwinpthread-1.dll from PATH, which allows an attacker to potentially run code locally through unsigned DLL loading.

Weakness

The product searches for critical resources using an externally-supplied search path that can point to resources that are not under the product’s direct control.

Affected Software

The problem extends to any type of critical resource that the product trusts. Some of the most common variants of untrusted search path are:
