High Nessus Plugin ID 56450
SynopsisArbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Windows Media Center.
DescriptionThe remote Windows host contains a version of Windows Media Center that fails to properly restrict the path used for loading external libraries.
If an attacker can trick a user into opening a file that resides in the same directory as a specially crafted DLL file, he can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code in that DLL file subject to the user's privileges.
