A video codec on the remote Windows host has a buffer overflow
The MPEG-4 codec, which is included with Windows Media codecs,
contains a buffer overflow vulnerability that can be triggered by a
specially crafted media file that uses MPEG-4 video encoding.
If an attacker can trick a user on the affected system into opening a
specially crafted media file or receiving specially crafted web
content, this issue could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code
subject to the user's privileges.
