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 remote code execution vulnerability in
Windows Media Center due to improper handling of Media Center Link
(.mcl) files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this
vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a website that hosts a
specially crafted .mcl file or to click a specially crafted link in an
email, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of
the current user.
