MS 2736233: Update Rollup for ActiveX Kill Bits (2736233)

high Nessus Plugin ID 62045


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


The remote Windows host is missing one or more kill bits for ActiveX controls that are known to contain vulnerabilities.

If any of these ActiveX controls are ever installed on the remote host, either now or in the future, they would expose the host to various security issues.

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


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