Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is prone to a
buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The CSS Web Installer ActiveX control, a component of the Authentium
Command On Demand virus scanner, installed on the remote Windows host
reportedly is affected by a buffer overflow involving the
'InstallProduct1' method, and possibly the 'InstallProduct' and
'InstallProduct2' methods as well.

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.
