|hpvirtualrooms-hpvirtualrooms14-activex-bo (39836)||High Risk|
The HP Virtual Rooms Install HPVirtualRooms14 ActiveX control (HPVirtualRooms14.dll) is vulnerable to a buffer overflow. By persuading a victim to visit a malicious Web page that passes an overly long string to the AuthenticationURL, PortalAPIURL, or cabroot property, 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.
