This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that allows
arbitrary command execution.

Description :

The IMWeb.IMWebControl.1 ActiveX control, included with the IMesh
peer-to-peer file sharing application, is installed on the remote
host. It reportedly allows arbitrary command execution through its
'SetHandler' method. If a remote attacker can trick a user on the
affected host into visiting a specially crafted web page, he may be
able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the affected
host subject to the user's privileges.
