IBM AD Build Client - DLL Hijacking

How to prevent DLL Hijacking

DLL hijacking isn’t a vulnerability. It is just an exploitation technique for getting code execution in the context of an application.

An exploitation technique on its own is useless if there isn’t a vulnerability such as weak folder permissions or a privileged file operation to abuse. In order to minimize this risk, system administrators need to pay extra attention and change the permissions on the IBM AD Build Client's installation folder to allow only the appropriate users to have administrative rights on it.
