IBM Rational ClearQuest ActiveX control (cqole.dll) buffer overflow
|rcq-cqole-activex-bo (73492)||High Risk|
IBM Rational ClearQuest ActiveX control (cqole.dll) is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by a function prototype mismatch in the RegisterSchemaRepoFromFileByDbSet() function. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web page, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges or cause the application to crash.
