Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through opening a
Windows Media Format file.
The remote Windows host contains a version of the Windows Media Runtime
that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- The ASF parser incorrectly parses files which make use
of the Window Media Speech codec. A remote attacker can
exploit this by tricking a user into opening a specially
crafted ASF file, which can lead to arbitrary code
- The Audio Compression Manager does not properly initialize
certain functions in compressed audio files. A remote
attacker can exploit this by tricking a user into opening
a specially crafted media file, which can lead to
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2009-2525)
