> (1) HIGH: Microsoft Agent Memory Corruption (MS07-051)
> Affected:
> Microsoft Windows 2000
>
> Description: Microsoft Agent is a Microsoft technology that allows for
> custom "software assistants", small animated characters that can
> instruct users on how to use applications or provide other services.
> This service is available as an ActiveX control. A flaw in
> the handling
> of certain URLs passed to Microsoft Agent could result in a memory
> corruption vulnerability. A specially crafted web page that
> instantiated
> this control and exploited this vulnerability would be able to execute
> arbitrary code with the privileges of the current user. A
> proof-of-concept for this vulnerability is publicly available.

> Microsoft MSN Messenger versions prior to 7.0.0820
> Microsoft Windows Live Messenger versions prior to 8.1
>
> Description: Microsoft Windows Live Messenger, formerly known as
> Microsoft MSN Messenger, is Microsoft's instant messaging application.
> This application supports live videoconferencing. Failure to properly
> handle specially crafted video data could trigger a memory corruption
> vulnerability. An attacker that successfully exploited this
> vulnerability would be able to execute arbitrary code with the
> privileges of the current user. Note that the user must first accept a
> video chat session from an attacker to be vulnerable. A
> proof-of-concept
> for this vulnerability is publicly available. This vulnerability was
> discussed in a previous edition of @RISK.
>
> Status: Microsoft confirmed, updates available.

> (3) HIGH: Apple Quicktime Script Injection Vulnerability
> Affected:
> Apple QuickTime version 7.2.0 and prior
>
> Description: Apple QuickTime is Apple's streaming media framework.
> QuickTime media link files are XML files that can be used to define
> various media streams and other parameters for QuickTime. A specially
> crafted media link file containing JavaScript or Mozilla Chrome
> information could trigger a vulnerability and lead to arbitrary script
> execution when viewed in a web browser. A malicious website
> hosting such
> a file could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary scripting
> code with the privileges of the current user. Note that, depending on
> configuration, malicious content may be opened without first prompting
> the user.  It is believed that the vulnerability is exploitable in
> Mozilla-based browsers (such as Firefox), Microsoft Internet Explorer,
> and Apple Safari. A proof-of-concept for this vulnerability
> is publicly
> available. Note that several Apple applications install QuickTime,
> including iTunes and Safari. It is believed that both the Mac OS X and
> Microsoft Windows platforms are vulnerable.
>
> Status: Apple has not confirmed, no updates available.

> (4) HIGH: Multiple HP Products ActiveX Control Buffer Overflow
> Affected:
> HP HPQUTIL.DLL ActiveX Component
> Products known to install this DLL include:
> HP Photo and Image Gallery
> HP All-in-One Series
>
> Description: Multiple HP products install the HPQUTIL.DLL
> library. This
> library exports several ActiveX controls. One of these
> controls contains
> a buffer overflow vulnerability in its "ListFiles" method. A specially
> crafted web page that instantiates this control could trigger this
> buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
> current user. A proof-of-concept for this vulnerability is publicly
> available.
>
> Status: HP has not confirmed, no updates available. Users can mitigate
> the impact of this vulnerability by disabling the vulnerable
> control via
> Microsoft's "kill bit" mechanism for CLSID
> "F3F381A3-4795-41FF-8190-7AA2A8102F85".
