Zenturi ProgramChecker contains multiple ActiveX buffer overflows, which can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
Zenturi ProgramChecker is a set of "... easy to use tools to analyze, validate, authenticate and research the programs that run on their PCs." Zenturi ProgramChecker includes multiple ActiveX controls, which are provided by sasatl.dll. These ActiveX controls contain multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities.
By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g., a web page or an HTML email message or attachment), an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. The attacker could also cause the web browser to crash.
We are currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem. Please consider the following workarounds
Disable the Zenturi ProgramChecker ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer
