This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Windows
Media Center.

The remote Windows host contains a version of Windows Media Center that
fails to properly restrict the path used for loading external libraries.

If an attacker can trick a user into opening a file that resides in the
same directory as a specially crafted DLL file, he can leverage this
issue to execute arbitrary code in that DLL file subject to the user's
privileges.
