Oracle Siebel Option Pack for IE ActiveX Control Vulnerability
Oracle Siebel Option Pack for IE
Oracle Siebel Option Pack for IE ActiveX control contains a vulnerability when initializing memory used by the "NewBusObj" method. By browsing to a website hosting malicious content or opening a crafted HTML document (e.g. e-mail message or attachment), an attacker could instantiate the vulnerable ActiveX control and corrupt system memory in such a way that could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code.
Arbitrary code execution under the current user's context
ActiveX remote code execution vulnerabilities have very high impacts since the source of the malicious payload can be any site on the Internet. This vulnerability could allow an attacker to gain the ability to execute remote arbitrary code with the same permissions as the user that is currently logged in. If the user is an administrator, the attacker could install malicious software and further compromise the system.
Apply appropriate vendor patches.
