Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in multiple Schneider Electric products, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks, disclose potentially sensitive information, and compromise a user’s system, according to Secunia.

1. Two errors in the TeeChart ActiveX control can be exploited to cause buffer overflows. No further information is currently available.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow execution of arbitrary code.
