The Intuit QuickBooks Online Edition ActiveX control contains multiple stack buffer overflows, which may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
Intuit QuickBooks Online Edition is a version of QuickBooks that functions within Internet Explorer as an ActiveX control. This ActiveX control contains multiple stack buffer overflow vulnerabilities, which can allow an overwrite of the process Structured Exception Handler (SEH).
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.
