MS11-027: Cumulative Security Update of ActiveX Kill Bits (2508272)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 53384
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Windows host has one or more ActiveX controls installed that could be abused to execute arbitrary code remotely if a user can be tricked into viewing a malicious web page using Internet Explorer.

Three of these controls are from Microsoft itself while the others are from third-party vendors that have asked Microsoft to prevent their controls from being run in Internet Explorer.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
