Yahoo! Music Jukebox ActiveX Controls Buffer Overflows

High Nessus Plugin ID 30205


The remote Windows host has a least one ActiveX control that is affected by buffer overflow vulnerabilities.


The remote host contains the 'DataGrid' and/or 'MediaGrid' ActiveX controls included with Yahoo! Music Jukebox.

These controls are reportedly affected by multiple buffer overflows involving, for example, the 'AddButton' and 'AddImage' methods of the 'DataGrid' control and 'AddBitmap' method of the 'MediaGrid' control.
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.


Upgrade to version of the control as described in the vendor advisory.
