The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is affected by a
buffer overflow vulnerability.
The remote host contains a version of the XUpload ActiveX control from
Persits Software that reportedly is affected by a buffer overflow in
its 'AddFolder' method that can be triggered by a long argument. If a
remote 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 affected host subject to the user's privileges.
