Authored by Tipping Point | Site zerodayinitiative.com

Zero Day Initiative Advisory 12-013 - 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 XMLCacheMgr class ActiveX control (CLSID 6F255F99-6961-48DC-B17E-6E1BCCBC0EE3). The CacheDocumentXMLWithId() method is vulnerable to directory traversal and arbitrary write, which allows an attacker to write malicious content to the filesystem. A remote attacker could leverage this vulnerability to gain code execution under the context of the web browser.
