CR64Loader ActiveX buffer overflow
|cr64loader-activex-bo (28735)||High Risk|
CR64Loader is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of HTML documents. By sending a specially-crafted HTML document, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of the victim or cause Internet Explorer to crash, if the attacker could convince the victim to open a malicious file or visit a Web site controlled by the attacker.
