The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a
remote buffer overflow vulnerability.
ffdshow, a DirectShow filter and VFW codec for multiple audio and
video formats, is installed on the remote host.
ffdshow is available as a standalone package but is typically bundled
with third-party codec software such as K-lite Codec Pack, XP Codec
Pack, Vista Codec Package and Codec Pack All-in-one.
The installed version fails to perform sufficient boundary checks
while processing very long URLs. By tricking a user into clicking on a
specially crafted stream, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code
on the remote system subject to the user's privileges.
