MS09-052: Vulnerability in Windows Media Player Could Allow Remote Code Execution (974112)

high Nessus Plugin ID 42108
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host contains a version of Windows Media Player that is affected by a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted ASF (Advanced Systems Format) file, this issue could be leveraged to run arbitrary code on the host subject to the user's privileges.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, and 2003.
