TSC2 Help Desk Ctab ActiveX control buffer overflow
|tsc2-ctab-bo (47769)||High Risk|
The TSC2 Help Desk Ctab ActiveX control (c1sizer.ocx) is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow when copying tab options. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web page that adds multiple tabs with overly long captions using the AddTab() 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 TSC2 Help Desk (4.3.1 or later), available from the Servantix Web site. See References.
