The iseemedia LPViewer ActiveX control contains multiple stack buffer overflows, which can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
The iseemedia LPViewer ActiveX control, which is provided by the file LPControl.dll, is a component that was created by MGI Software. It was then acquired by Roxio, and then iseemedia after that. The LPViewer ActiveX control contains stack buffer overflows in the url(), toolbar(), and enableZoomPastMax() methods.
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 Internet Explorer (or the program using the WebBrowser control) to crash.
We are currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem. Please consider the following workarounds:
Disable the LPViewer ActiveX control in Internet Explorer
