Fortinet Discovers Fitbit Aria Setup for Windows DLL Preloading Vulnerability
Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs has discovered a DLL preloading vulnerability in Fitbit Aria Setup for Windows.
Fitbit Aria Setup is a software client that was specifically designed to enable your scale to connect and sync on your home's wireless network.
Fitbit Aria Setup for Windows is susceptible to a DLL preloading vulnerability. The issue occurs when the application looks to load a DLL for execution and an attacker provides a malicious DLL to use instead. The application generally follows a specific search path to locate the DLL. The vulnerability can be exploited by a simple file write (or potentially an over-write) which results in a foreign DLL running under the context of the application.
Users should apply the solution provided by Fitbit.
Fortinet reported the vulnerability to Fitbit on June 6, 2017.
Fitbit released patch for it on June 21, 2017.
This vulnerability was discovered by Kushal Arvind Shah of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs.
