Description

This signature detects attempt to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerbility by passing long arguments into a method of WebEx Meeting Manager ActiveX Control.

Additional Information

WebEx is file-sharing and conferencing software for Microsoft Windows.

The 'atucfobj' module of WebEx Meeting Manager is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

This issue affects the 'NewObject()' method of the 'atucfobj.dll' ActiveX control library. The control is identified by CLSID: 32E26FD9-F435-4A20-A561-35D4B987CFDC.
