AxisCamControl ActiveX Control Buffer Overflow

High Nessus Plugin ID 35454


The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is affected by a remote buffer overflow vulnerability.


The remote host contins the AxisCamControl ActiveX control, which is used to control Axis network cameras.

This control reportedly has a stack-based buffer overflow in its 'image_pan_tilt' property. If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into viewing a specially crafted HTML document, he can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the affected system subject to the user's privileges.


Remove the affected control as recommended by the vendor's advisory
