ComponentOne VSFlexGrid ActiveX control buffer overflow
|componentone-vsflexgrid-bo (45184)||High Risk|
The ComponentOne VSFlexGrid ActiveX control (VSFlexGrid.VSFlexGridL) is vulnerable to a buffer overflow. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web page that passes an overly long argument to the Archive() 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.
Upgrade to the latest version of VSFlexGrid ActiveX control (188.8.131.5281.142 or later), available from the ComponentOne Web site. See References.
