Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 9 'wmex.dll' ActiveX Control Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

The Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 9 ActiveX control is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of an application using the affected ActiveX control (typically Internet Explorer). Failed attacks will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.
