The remote host is running Trend Micro Antivirus, a commercial

vulnerability. The issue exists due a vulnerability in the ActiveX
control installed by the OfficeScan server during a web install of the

be exploited by a malicious website. The attacker can trigger this
issue by enticing a user to click on a malicious link or sending the
the link in an email and urging the user to click on it. Successful
exploitation of this issue might result in arbitrary code execution.
