MS10-008: Cumulative Security Update of ActiveX Kill Bits (978262)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 44418


The remote Windows host is missing an update that disables selected ActiveX controls.


The Microsoft Data Analyzer ActiveX control has a remote code execution vulnerability. The system may also have one or more vulnerable third-party ActiveX controls installed.

A remote attacker could exploit these issues by tricking a user into requesting a maliciously crafted web page, resulting in arbitrary code execution.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, and 7.
