HP Operations Manager SourceView ActiveX LoadFile / SaveFile Stack Overflows

High Nessus Plugin ID 45593


The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is susceptible to buffer overflow attacks.


The SourceView ActiveX control, a component of HP Operations Manager, installed on the remote Windows host reportedly is affected by buffer overflows that can be triggered by passing specially crafted Unicode strings to the 'LoadFile' or 'SaveFile' methods.

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.


Apply the appropriate patch referenced in HP's advisory.
