HTTP MySpace Uploader ActiveX BO

Severity: High

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 an attempt to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in the MySpace Uploader ActiveX control which could result in remote execution.

Additional Information

MySpace Uploader ActiveX control is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

Successfully exploiting this issue may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application using the ActiveX control (typically Internet Explorer). Failed exploit attempts likely result in denial-of-service conditions.


  • The Symantec DeepSight team has confirmed that this issue leads to a crash in 'MySpaceUploader.ocx' and; other versions may also be vulnerable. We will update this BID as more information emerges.
