Microsoft Internet Explorer BR549.DLL ActiveX Control Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Microsoft Internet Explorer BR549.dll ActiveX control has been reported prone to a buffer overflow vulnerability.

The issue presents itself in the Windows reporting tool support functionality of BR549.dll and is likely due to a lack of sufficient bounds checking performed on user-supplied data.
