Corel ActiveCGM Browser ActiveX (acqm.dll) Multiple Overflows

High Nessus Plugin ID 25494


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


The remote host contains the ActiveCGM ActiveX control, which supports viewing of CGM files in a web browser.

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


Either disable the use of this ActiveX control from within Internet Explorer by setting its kill bit or contact the vendor to upgrade it to version or later.
