Description

The version of the LaunchObj ActiveX control, a component included with Symantec AppStream Client / Altiris Streaming Agent and installed on the remote Windows host, reportedly contains a number of unsafe methods, such as 'installAppMgr()', that can be used to download and execute arbitrary code. If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into viewing a specially crafted HTML document, he can leverage these issues to execute arbitrary code on the affected system subject to the user's privileges.
