Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Multiple buffer overflows in the Trend Micro OfficeScan Web-Deployment SetupINICtrl ActiveX control in OfficeScanSetupINI.dll, as used in OfficeScan 7.0 before Build 1344, OfficeScan 7.3 before Build 1241, and Client / Server / Messaging Security 3.0 before Build 1197, allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted HTML document.
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
