HP Info Center ActiveX Control Multiple Remote Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 29725


The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is affected by remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The remote host contains the HP Quick Launch Button software, part of the HP Info Center software installed by default on many HP and Compaq laptop models.

The version of this software on the remote host includes an ActiveX control that reportedly contains three insecure methods - 'GetRegValue', 'SetRegValue', and 'LaunchApp' - that are marked as 'Safe for Scripting'. If a remote attacker can trick a user on the affected host into visiting a specially crafted web page, these issues could be leveraged to manipulate the remote registry or launch arbitrary programs.


Apply the appropriate patch as discussed in the vendor advisory above and ensure that the version of the affected control is or higher.
