Windows Media Player Remote ASF File Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Windows Media Player is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied data.

Attackers may attempt to exploit this issue by coercing users to visit a malicious website or to access malicious ASF files.

Successfully exploiting this issue allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of the user running the affected application. This facilitates the remote compromise of affected computers.
