Description

The version of the Whale Client Components ActiveX control, a component of Microsoft Whale Intelligent Application Gateway product and installed on the remote Windows host, reportedly contains multiple stack-based buffer overflows that can be triggered using long arguments to the 'CheckForUpdates' and 'UpdateComponents' methods. 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.
