Multiple McAfee MCSUBMGR ActiveX control buffer overflow
|mcafee-mcsubmgr-activex-bo (34179)||High Risk|
Multiple McAfee products are vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the MCSUBMGR ActiveX control's IsOldAppInstalled() function. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web page, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with the victim's privileges.
Refer to McAfee Security Bulletin 419189 for patch, upgrade, or suggested workaround information. See References.
