It is possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote Windows host
The version of Microsoft DirectShow installed on the remote host is
affected by a heap-based buffer overflow that can be triggered when
parsing AVI media files.
If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a
specially crafted AVI file, this issue could be leveraged to execute
arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
