Microsoft DirectX DirectShow QuickTime Video Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

Microsoft DirectX is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability because the DirectShow component fails to properly handle QuickTime media files.

Successfully exploiting this issue allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the application that uses DirectX. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.
