Zoomify Viewer ActiveX Buffer Overflows

High Nessus Plugin ID 25460


The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is susceptible to multiple buffer overflow attacks.


The remote host contains the Zoomify Viewer ActiveX control, used to incorporate zoomable images into websites.

The version of this control on the remote host is reportedly affected by multiple stack-based buffer overflows. If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into visiting a specially crafted web page, these issues could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code on the host subject to the user's privileges.


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