Parvez Anwar has discovered a vulnerability in the WebEx Meeting Manager WebexUCFObject ActiveX control, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the WebexUCFObject ActiveX control (atucfobj.dll) loading libraries (e.g. wbxtrace.dll) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries by e.g. embedding the ActiveX control into a Microsoft Word document and tricking a user into opening the document from a remote WebDAV or SMB share.
The vulnerability is confirmed in atucfobj.dll version 20.2009.2706.1025 included in the WebEx Meeting Manager ActiveX package. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: The vendor has planned the rollout of an updated version for December 4th, 2010. Please contact the vendor for additional details.
