Description

The remote host contains the PVATLCalendar.PVCalendar.1 ActiveX control distributed with Symantec Backup Exec for Windows Servers.

The installed version of that control reportedly contains two stack-based buffer overflows and allows for corrupting or saving malicious script code, and overwriting arbitrary files. These issues can be triggered by specially crafted arguments to the '_DOWText0'... '_DOWText6' and '_MonthText0' ... '_MonthText11' properties and then calling the 'Save()' method.
