Description

The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to a user-after-free flaw in Microsoft Windows Media Center. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to open a file or visit a website containing a specially crafted Office file, resulting in execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
