Description

The remote host is missing Security Update 956844. The DHTML Editing Component ActiveX Control on the remote host has a remote code execution vulnerability. A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into viewing a specially crafted web page, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
