> DESCRIPTION:
> Krystian Kloskowski has discovered a vulnerability in DirectX Media
> SDK, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a
> vulnerable system.
>
> The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in Live Picture
> Corporation's DXSurface.LivePicture.FLashPix.1 (DXTLIPI.DLL) ActiveX
> control when handling the "SourceUrl" property. This can be exploited
> to cause a buffer overflow by assigning an overly long (around 1044
> bytes) string to the affected property.
>
> Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code when e.g.
> a user visits a malicious website.
>
> The vulnerability is confirmed in DirectX Media SDK version 6.0
> including DXTLIPI.DLL version 6.0.2.827. Other versions and
> applications that use the affected ActiveX control may also be
> affected.
>
> SOLUTION:
> Set the kill-bit for the affected ActiveX control.
