VULNERABILITY DETAILS


This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of HP LoadRunner. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists within the micWebAjax.dll ActiveX control. The control exposes the NotifyEvent method. The method performs insufficient bounds checking on user-supplied data which results in stack corruption. An attacker can leverage this situation to execute code under the context of the user running the browser.
