The Eyedog ActiveX control is marked 'safe for scripting' although it permits registry access and other information gathering methods to be used. It also contains a buffer overflow error. These weaknesses can be exploited remotely via a malicious webpage or email.

With this control, MSInfoLoadFile is the offending method. 
There is no easy way to RET to our code, so instead, I have 
shown how to simply RET to ExitProcess directly. This will 
cause the host to terminate.
