Sony ImageStation AxRUploadServer.AxRUploadControl ActiveX (AxRUploadServer.dll) SetLogging Method Overflow
High Nessus Plugin ID 33484
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host contains the AxRUploadServer.AxRUploadControl.1 ActiveX control, which was used to upload photos to Sony's ImageStation photo sharing and printing service.
The version of this control installed on the remote host reportedly contains a buffer overflow when handling a long argument to the 'SetLogging' method. If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into viewing a specially crafted HTML document, this method could be used to execute arbitrary code on the affected system subject to the user's privileges.
SolutionRemove the affected control as the ImageStation service was shut down in February 2008.
