Symantec Backup Exec Calendar ActiveX Control Multiple Vulnerabilities (SYM08-007)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host contains the PVATLCalendar.PVCalendar.1 ActiveX
control distributed with Symantec Backup Exec for Windows Servers.

The installed version of that control reportedly contains two
stack-based buffer overflows and allows for corrupting or saving
malicious script code, and overwriting arbitrary files. These issues
can be triggered by specially crafted arguments to the '_DOWText0'...
'_DOWText6' and '_MonthText0' ... '_MonthText11' properties and then
calling the 'Save()' method.
