CDDBControl ActiveX Control Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for the CDDBControl ActiveX control

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote Windows host has an ActiveX control that is susceptible
to a buffer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The Windows remote host contains the GraceNote CDDBControl ActiveX
control, which is used by various products, including AOL's software,
to lookup CD information in the GraceNote CDDB and is commonly marked
as safe for scripting.

The version of this ActiveX control on the remote host reportedly
contains a buffer overflow vulnerability that arises when a large
string is supplied as an option for the control. A remote attacker
may be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the
remote host subject to the rights of the current user.
