AxWebRemoveCtrl ActiveX Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for remote code execution vulnerability in AxWebRemoveCtrl ActiveX control

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is prone to remote
code execution.

Description :

The remote host contains an ActiveX control from SunnComm called
AxWebRemoveCtrl. This control was likely installed by requesting an
uninstaller for SunnComm's MediaMax digital rights management software
used, for example, on select Sony CDs.

By design, AxWebRemoveCtrl permits any web site to cause the control to
download and execute code from an arbitrary URL. Should a user visit
a maliciously-crafted website, this would permit that website to
execute arbitrary code on the remote host.

On the affected host, remove the file 'AxWebRemoveCtrl.ocx', and
reboot.
