The remote Windows host contains a media player that is affected by multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities.
The version of VLC media player installed on the remote host is earlier than 1.1.8. Such versions are reportedly affected by buffer overflow vulnerabilities when handling specially crafted AMV and NSV files, which could result in arbitrary code execution.
