The remote host has multiple ActiveX controls with code execution vulnerabilities.

'Vsflex8l.ocx', 'c1sizer.ocx', 'vsflex7l .ocx', and 'olch2x32.ocx' ActiveX controls have unspecified arbitrary code execution vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted web page.
