Starting with the 2.4 release, the Metasploit Framework can be used to load arbitrary ActiveX controls into a target 
process. This feature works by patching the registry of the target system and causing the exploited process to launch 
internet explorer with a URL pointing back to the Framework. The Framework starts up a simple web server that accepts 
the request and sends back a web page instructing it to load an ActiveX component. The exploited system then downloads, 
registers, and executes the ActiveX.
