Oracle JInitiator beans.ocx ActiveX Multiple Buffer Overflows
High Nessus Plugin ID 25951
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has at least one ActiveX control that is affected by several buffer overflow vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe remote host contains one or more versions of the 'beans.ocx' ActiveX control, distributed as a part of Oracle JInitiator.
The version of at least one of these controls on the remote host reportedly is affected by multiple and as-yet unspecified stack buffer overflows in its initialization parameters. If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into visiting a specially crafted web page, this issue could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code on the host subject to the user's privileges.
SolutionDisable the use of any reported ActiveX controls from within Internet Explorer by setting their kill bits.
