This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Borland Silk Central. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file. The specific flaw exists within the Borland Silk Central TeeChart ActiveX control. The control suffers from an untrusted pointer dereference vulnerability because it blindly calls an attacker-supplied memory address. An attacker can exploit this condition to achieve code execution under the context of the browser process.
