The Cisco WVC200 Wireless-G PTZ Internet Video Camera sends live video through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world. Viewers can access the video stream through an HTTP service, which requires an ActiveX client to be installed in the user's browser.


The PlayerPT.ocx ActiveX Control installed by the camera server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow via the SetSource() method. If a user with this control browses to a malicious website, that site can exploit this vulnerability to gain control of the user's system.


Set the kill bit for Class ID 9E065E4A-BD9D-4547-8F90-985DC62A5591 as described in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 240797.
