Description

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Panasonic Security API. 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 Ipropsapi.ipropsapiCtrl.1 ActiveX control. By passing an overly long string to the MulticastAddr method, an attacker can overflow a buffer on the stack. This vulnerability could be used to execute arbitrary code under the context of the user.
