Snapshot Viewer for Microsoft Access ActiveX Control Arbitrary File Download Vulnerability

Symantec has detected evidence that this issue is being actively exploited in the wild. Active exploits of this issue are known to be attacking both Chinese and English versions of Microsoft Windows.

UPDATE: Since an exploit for this issue is now part of a variant of the Neosploit exploit kit, we will likely see widespread exploit attempts of this vulnerability.

The following exploit code is available:
