Microsoft Internet Explorer ADODB.Recordset ActiveX object denial of service
|ie-adodbrecordset-dos (28066)||Medium Risk|
Microsoft Internet Explorer is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a memory access error in the SysFreeString() function that can occur when processing a ADODB.Recordset ActiveX object that repeatedly calls the NextRecordset method with an overly long string. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a victim's browser to crash, if the attacker could persuade the victim to visit a malicious Web page.
Note: It may also be possible to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the victim user.
No remedy available as of May 1, 2013.
