A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will invoke the 'MyAsUtil5.2.0.603.dll' control, bypass the domain execution control policy using a cross-site scripting technique, and use MyASUtil.InstallInfo.RunUserProgram() to execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.
