Oracle JInitiator beans.ocx ActiveX Multiple Buffer Overflows

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has at least one ActiveX control that is
affected by several buffer overflow vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host contains one or more versions of the 'beans.ocx'
ActiveX control, distributed as a part of Oracle JInitiator.

The version of at least one of these controls on the remote host
reportedly is affected by multiple and as-yet unspecified stack buffer
overflows in its initialization parameters. If an attacker can trick
a user on the affected host into visiting a specially crafted web
page, this issue could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code on the
host subject to the user's privileges.
