A multimedia application framework installed on the remote Mac OS X
host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
The version of Microsoft Silverlight installed on the remote host
reportedly does not properly use unmanaged objects, which could allow
a malicious web application to access memory in an unsafe manner.
An attacker may be able to leverage this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary code on the affected system if a user on it can be tricked
into viewing a specially crafted web page using a web browser that can
run Silverlight applications.
