MS04-024: Buffer overrun in Windows Shell (839645)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

It is possible to execute commands on the remote host.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Windows that has a flaw in its
shell. An attacker could persuade a user on the remote host to execute
a rogue program by using a CLSID instead of a file type, thus fooling
the user into thinking that he will not execute an application but
simply open a document.
