Description:   A vulnerability was reported in eBay Picture Manager ActiveX control. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow in the EPUImageControl COM object in 'EUPWALcontrol.dll' and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.
