MS10-013: Vulnerability in Microsoft DirectShow Could Allow Remote Code Execution (977935)

high Nessus Plugin ID 44423


It is possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote Windows host using DirectShow.


The version of Microsoft DirectShow installed on the remote host is affected by a heap-based buffer overflow that can be triggered when parsing AVI media files.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted AVI file, this issue could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
