MySpace Uploader ActiveX Control < 1.0.0.6 Action Property Buffer Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is affected by a
buffer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host contains a version of the MySpace Uploader ActiveX
control (MySpace.Uploader.4.1) that reportedly is affected by a buffer
overflow that can be triggered by assigning a string longer than 260
characters to certain properties, such as 'Action', 'ExtractIptc', and
'ExtractExif'. 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.

the issue.
