Web Attack: Microsoft Common Controls CVE-2012-0158 2

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.

Description

This signature detects attempts to exploit a remote code execution vulnerability in Microsoft Windows Common Controls.

Additional Information

Microsoft Windows Common Control Library is used by Windows Explorer to create controls such as list view, header, tree tip, tooltip, tool bar, status bar, etc.

The application is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability. Specifically, this issue affects 'MSCOMCTL.TreeView', 'MSCOMCTL.ListView2', 'MSCOMCTL.TreeView2', and 'MSCOMCTL.ListView' ActiveX controls contained in the 'MSCOMCTL.OCX' file. The controls are identified by the following CLSIDs:

bdd1f04b-858b-11d1-b16a-00c0f0283628
996BF5E0-8044-4650-ADEB-0B013914E99C
C74190B6-8589-11d1-B16A-00C0F0283628
9181DC5F-E07D-418A-ACA6-8EEA1ECB8E9E

An attacker can exploit this issue by enticing an unsuspecting user to view a malicious webpage.

Successful exploits will allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code within the context of the application (typically Internet Explorer) that uses the ActiveX control.
