Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Trend Micro HouseCall, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an implementation error within the HouseCall ActiveX control (Housecall_ActiveX.dll). This can be exploited to e.g. download and load an arbitrary library file by specifying a custom update server.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in versions 22.214.171.1248 and 126.96.36.1998. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Remove the ActiveX control and install version 188.8.131.525.
