wodSFTP ActiveX Arbitrary File Access

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21625


The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that allows arbitrary access to the filesystem.


The Windows remote host contains the wodSFTP ActiveX control, which provides SFTP functionality to applications that use it and is marked as 'safe for scripting'. A remote attacker may be able to use this control to store files on the remote filesystem or retrieve files from it by means of a specially crafted HTML page or email and without any further interaction from the user.


Disable the use of this ActiveX control from within Internet Explorer by setting its kill bit.
