This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of the IBM Access Support ActiveX control, used to support
IBM and Lenovo computer systems and installed on the remote Windows
host, reportedly contains a stack-based buffer overflow that can be
triggered by calling the 'GetXMLValue' method with an overly long
argument. If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into
viewing a specially crafted HTML document, he can leverage this issue to
execute arbitrary code on the affected system subject to the user's
privileges.

Solution :

Unknown at this time.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
