Anzio Web Print Object (WePO) ActiveX mainurl Parameter Buffer Overflow

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


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an ActiveX component that is susceptible
to a buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The remote host contains the Anzio Web Print Object (WePO) ActiveX
component, which is used for 'push' printing from a web page or
application.

The version of the control installed on the remote host reportedly
contains a stack-based buffer overflow that can be triggered by
passing long values of its 'mainurl' parameter. If an attacker can
trick a user on the affected host into viewing a specially crafted
HTML document, this method could be used to execute arbitrary code
on the affected system subject to the user's privileges.
