Vulnerability Note VU#477604
Juniper Networks IVE client ActiveX control buffer overflow
The ActiveX control used by Juniper IVE OS devices contains a buffer overflow, which may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable client.
Juniper IVE OS is an operating system used by Juniper devices, such as the Juniper Networks Secure Access SSL VPN units. The IVE client software includes an ActiveX control, which is used to allow an Internet Explorer client system to connect to the IVE server. The ActiveX control provided by IVE OS contains a buffer overflow vulnerability.
By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g., a web page, an HTML email message, or an HTML email attachment), an 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.
Apply an update
Update the IVE software, as specified in Juniper alert PSN-2006-03-013. Note that all client systems must have the updated version of the Juniper ActiveX control installed in order to be protected against this vulnerability.
