This attack could pose a serious security threat. You should take immediate action to stop any damage or prevent further damage from happening.
This signature detects attempt to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability by passing long arguments into a method of GlobalLink glitemflat.dll ActiveX Control.
GlobalLink is prone to heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer. The issue occurs in the 'SetClientInfo()' method of the 'glitemflat.dll' ActiveX control with CLSID '7D1425D4-E2FC-4A52-BDA9-B9DCAC5EF574'.
An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code within the context of the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will result in denial-of-service conditions.
GlobalLink 126.96.36.199 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
