High Nessus Plugin ID 64572
SynopsisThe remote Windows host is potentially affected by a code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote Windows host is potentially affected by a vulnerability that could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted media file (such as an .mpg file), opens a Microsoft Office document (such as a .ppt file) that contains a specially crafted embedded media file, or receives specially crafted streaming content. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
