Intrusion Prevention



It indicates a possible exploit of buffer overflow vulnerability in the IsValidFile function in the ADM ActiveX control for Altnet Download Manager that may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long bstrFilepath parameter. The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the "IsValidFile()" method in the ADM ActiveX control. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via e.g. a malicious web site by passing an overly long string to the "bstrFilepath" parameter.
