Description


Gregory R. Panakkal has discovered a security issue in Rediff Bol, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.

The problem is that the "FullAddressBook()" function in the "Fetch.FetchContact.1" ActiveX control is insecurely exposed. This can be exploited to disclose contacts in the Windows Address Book (WAB).

Successful exploitation requires that the user is tricked into visiting a malicious web site.

The security issue has been confirmed in version 7.0 build 208. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 7.0 build 209.
