J. Alex Halderman has reported a vulnerability in SunnComm MediaMax's uninstallation ActiveX control, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a design error in the AxWebRemoveCtrl ActiveX control that is installed via Internet Explorer when the user un-installs the MediaMax software by visiting the vendor's website. This may be exploited to download and execute code from an arbitrary URL.
Successful exploitation requires that the user is e.g. tricked into visiting a malicious website.
Solution: Remove the ActiveX control from the system if it is installed.
