Description

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.
