Description

The install of the Cisco Linksys PlayerPT ActiveX control on the remote Windows host reportedly has a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability that can be triggered by a specially crafted argument to the 'base64string' argument of the its SetSource() method.

By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted web page, a remote, unauthenticated attacker could execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the user's privileges.
