Microsoft BlnMgr Proxy (blnmgrps.dll) COM object fails to implement required methods
The Microsoft BlnMgr Proxy COM object fails to implement the methods required by the IDispatch interface, which may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
Microsoft COM is a technology that allows programmers to create reusable software components that can be incorporated into applications to extend their functionality. Microsoft COM includes COM+, Distributed COM (DCOM), and ActiveX Controls.
By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g., a web page or an HTML email message), an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. The attacker could also cause IE (or the program using the WebBrowser control) to crash.
