Krystian Kloskowski has reported a vulnerability in CA BrightStor ARCserve Backup for Laptops & Desktops, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the "AddColumn()" method within the "ListCtrl" ActiveX control (ListCtrl.ocx), which can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long argument passed to the affected method.
