Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

Windows.

The version of PowerArchiver installed on the remote host has a buffer
overflow in the 'paiso.dll' library file that can be triggered when

attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a
specially-crafted ISO image file, he can leverage this issue to
execute arbitrary code on the host subject to the user's rights.
