Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Windows Media
The remote Windows host is affected by two vulnerabilities involving
the way in which AVI headers are processed and AVI data is validated
that could be abused to execute arbitrary code remotely.
If an attacker can trick a user on the affected system into opening a
specially crafted AVI file, these issues could be leveraged to execute
arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
