CVE-2007-2216 Detail

Current Description

The tblinf32.dll (aka vstlbinf.dll) ActiveX control for Internet Explorer 5.01, 6 SP1, and 7 uses an incorrect IObjectsafety implementation, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by requesting the HelpString property, involving a crafted DLL file argument to the TypeLibInfoFromFile function, which overwrites the HelpStringDll property to call the DLLGetDocumentation function in another DLL file, aka "ActiveX Object Vulnerability."
