3) Description of Vulnerability

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

The vulnerability is caused by missing input validation in the
handling of the "StopModule()" method and can be exploited via a
specially crafted "lModule" parameter to reference an expected module
structure at an arbitrary memory address. This can be exploited to
dereference an arbitrary value in memory as a function pointer.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
