Vulnerability Note VU#714593
McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator and ProtectionPilot ActiveX control buffer overflow vulnerability
A vulnerability in an ActiveX control provided with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator and ProtectionPilot software could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on an affected system.
The McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator and ProtectionPilot are applications that are designed to allow centralized security management of multiple clients. Remote management of the ePolicy Orchestrator and ProtectionPilot servers are done through a management console.
The ActiveX control SiteManager.Dll that is shipped with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator and ProtectionPilot contains two functions that are vulnerable to stack based buffer overflows.
By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g., a web page or an HTML email message or attachment), a remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. The attacker could also cause Internet Explorer (or the program using the WebBrowser control) to crash.
