SOFTWARE: AOL Radio AmpX ActiveX Control 2.x - http://secunia.com/product/16511/

DESCRIPTION: Some vulnerabilities have been reported in AOL Radio, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.


The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors in the AmpX ActiveX control (AmpX.dll) when handling arguments passed to certain unspecified methods. These can be exploited to cause stack-based buffer overflows by passing overly long arguments to the affected methods. Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code. The vulnerabilities are reported in AmpX.dll version 2.6.1.11. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION: Apply updates. - http://radaol-prod-web-rr.streamops.aol.com/mediaplugin/unagi_patch.exe
