A vulnerability has been reported in some Symantec products, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the Symantec Client Proxy ActiveX control (CLIproxy.dll). This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow e.g. when a user visits a specially crafted web page passing an overly long argument to the "SetRemoteComputerName()" method.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is reported in Symantec AntiVirus 10.0.x, 10.1.x, and 10.2.x and Symantec Client Security 3.0.x and 3.1.x.
