Gyu Tae Park has discovered a vulnerability in the iMBCContents ActiveX control, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the iMBCContents ActiveX control including the insecure "Execute()" method, which executes an arbitrary URI taken as argument. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary local programs with parameters on a user's system via a URI using the "file:" URI handler.
Successful exploitation requires that the user is e.g. tricked into visiting a malicious web site.
The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 220.127.116.11. Other versions may also be affected.
