Posted Aug 16, 2011
Authored by Tipping Point | Site zerodayinitiative.com

Zero Day Initiative Advisory 11-261 - This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of HP Easy Printer Care. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file. The specific flaw exists within the XMLSimpleAccessor class ActiveX control (CLSID 466576F3-19B6-4FF1-BD48-3E0E1BFB96E9). The SaveXML() method is vulnerable to directory traversal, which allows an attacker to write arbitrary content to the filesystem. A remote attacker could leverage this vulnerability to gain code execution under the context of the web browser.
