3) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered four vulnerabilities in NTR ActiveX
control, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a
user's system.

1) A boundary error in the handling of the "StartModule()" method can
be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long
"bstrUrl" parameter.

2) A boundary error when constructing an url can be exploited to cause
a stack-based buffer overflow via e.g. an overly long, specially
crafted "bstrParams" parameter passed to the "Check()" method.

3) A boundary error when constructing the path to a .ntr file can be
exploited to cause a limited stack-based buffer overflow via an overly
long, specially crafted "bstrUrl" parameter passed to the "Download()"
or "DownloadModule()" methods.

4) A boundary error when constructing an url can be exploited to cause
a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long, specially crafted
"bstrUrl" parameter passed to the "Download()" or "DownloadModule()"
methods.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities allows execution of
arbitrary code.
