A vulnerability has been reported in the NOS Microsystems getPlus ActiveX control, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error within gp.ocx when processing installation files. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by e.g. tricking a user into visiting a malicious website.
Successful exploitation allows the execution of arbitrary code, but may require that the attacker can place files on the domain or subdomain of a product using the download manager.
The vulnerability is reported in gp.ocx version 184.108.40.206. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: The vulnerability is fixed by the vendor via APSB08-19 patches.
