|housecall-llibrary-code-execution (47524)||High Risk|
The Trend Micro HouseCall ActiveX control (Housecall_ActiveX.dll) could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by improper validation of update server parameters. By persuading a victim to visit a malicious Web page, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to download a file to a location on the system writable by the victim. This vulnerability could be further leveraged to execute arbitrary code on the system by downloading a file to the startup directory.
