MS10-016: Vulnerability in Windows Movie Maker Could Allow Remote Code Execution (975561)

high Nessus Plugin ID 45020



Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Windows Movie Maker.


The remote Windows host contains a version of Windows Movie Maker that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability due to the way the application parses project file formats.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected system into opening a specially crafted Movie Maker or Producer file using the affected application, this issue could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, Vista, and 7.
