MS 2695962: Update Rollup for ActiveX Kill Bits (2695962)

High Nessus Plugin ID 59044


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


The remote Windows host is missing a kill bit for an ActiveX control that is known to contain vulnerabilities.

If this ActiveX control is ever installed on the remote host, either now or in the future, it would expose the host to various security issues.

Note that the affected control is from a third-party vendor that has asked Microsoft to prevent their control from being run in Internet Explorer.


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