The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is affected by a
buffer overflow vulnerability.
The AskJeevesToolBar.SettingsPlugin.1 ActiveX control, part of the
Ask Toolbar, is installed on the remote host. It reportedly contains
a buffer overflow that can be triggered with a long value for the
'ShortFormat' property. If a remote attacker can trick a user on the
affected host into visiting a specially crafted web page, the issue
could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code on the affected host
subject to the user's privileges.
