AOL Radio AmpX ActiveX control buffer overflow
|aolradio-ampx-activex-bo (39592)||High Risk|
The AOL Radio AmpX ActiveX control (AmpX.dll) is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the AppendFileToPlayList method. By persuading a victim to visit a malicious Web page that passes an overly long string to the AppendFileToPlayList method, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of the victim or cause the victim's browser to crash.
AOL Radio customers should contact AOL support for upgrade or patch information. See References.
