ActiveX Control vulnerability blocked by Finjan

Finjan Software : 08 July, 2009  (Technical Article)
Microsoft is currently working on closing a vulnerability on it's Video ActiveX Control
Cybercriminals are targeting yet another vulnerability in Microsoft product - the Microsoft Video ActiveX Control. The zero-day vulnerability that was found can be exploited via a malformed Web page.

The attack, which has already been spotted in the wild, enables remote code execution (RCE) on the targeted machine. By exploiting this vulnerability cybercriminals are inserting a data-stealing Trojan to the victim's machine.

Microsoft is currently working to develop a security update for Windows to address this vulnerability.

Web security products utilizing real-time code analysis technologies are the preferred solution to block such 0-day attacks. Yuval Ben-Itzhak, Finjan CTO explains, "Finjan customers are protected from this zero-day attack as Finjan's Vital Security Web Gateway is able to detect the exploit and block the attack without prior knowledge of the specific technique."
