A vulnerability has been reported in the Symantec Altiris ConsoleUtilities ActiveX control, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the ConsoleUtilities ActiveX control (AeXNSConsoleUtilities.dll). This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long argument passed to the "BrowseAndSaveFile()" method.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
