The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution
The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by a flaw in Windows Movie Maker due to a failure
to correctly restrict the path being used for loading external
libraries. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges by convincing the
user to open a specially crafted Windows Movie Maker (.mswmm) file
that is located in the same network directory as a specially crafted
dynamic link library (DLL) file.
