plan-s has discovered two vulnerabilities in NamoInstaller ActiveX Control, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
1) The NamoInstaller.NamoInstall.1 ActiveX control (NamoInstaller.dll) includes the insecure "Install()" method, which can be exploited to e.g. download and execute a malicious program when a user is tricked into visiting a malicious website.
2) A boundary error in the NamoInstaller.NamoInstall.1 ActiveX control when handling arguments passed to the "Install()" method can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by passing an overly-long string as argument to the affected method.
Vulnerability #1 is confirmed in NamoInstaller.dll versions 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, and 184.108.40.206, and vulnerability #2 is confirmed in version 220.127.116.11. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Set the kill-bit for the affected ActiveX control.
