The Symantec Norton Internet Security 2004 ISAlertDataCOM ActiveX control contains a stack buffer overflow, which can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
Symantec Norton Internet Security is a software package for Windows that includes antivirus, firewall, intrusion detection, privacy protection, spam filtering, and content filtering functionality. Norton Internet Security 2004 includes an ActiveX control called ISAlertDataCOM, which is provided by the file ISLAlert.dll. This ActiveX control contains stack buffer overflows in the Get() and Set() methods.
Note that the vulnerable control comes with both the Norton Internet Security 2004 and Norton Personal Firewall 2004 software packages.
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.
