Yet another “Month of..” bug campaign. This time, the Month of ActiveX Bugs (MoAxB) will focus on vulnerable ActiveX controls. Do a quick title search for “activex” and you will see a healthy history of vulnerabilities related to ActiveX controls. There is already a debate on the Full-Disclosure list regarding if this will be a month of annoying Denial of Service issues, or something more severe.
