Bulletin:   MS01-042

Issue:
======
Windows Media Player provides support for audio and video streaming.
Streaming media channels can be configured by using Windows Media
Station (.NSC) files. An unchecked buffer exists in the functionality
used to process Windows Media Station files. This unchecked buffer
could potentially allow an attacker to run code of his choice on the
machine of another user. The attacker could either send a specially
malformed file to another user and entice her to run or preview it,
or
he could host such a file on a web site and cause it to launch
automatically whenever a user visited the site. The code could take
any action on the machine that the legitimate user himself could
take.

Mitigating Factors:
====================
- Customers who have applied the Outlook E-mail Security Update
  (OESU) for Outlook 2000 or are running Outlook XP, which has the
  OESU functionality built-in, are automatically protected against
  HTML e-mail based attempts to exploit this vulnerability.

- For others not in the above categories, the attacker would have to
  entice the potential victim to visit a web site he controlled, or
to
  open an HTML e-mail he had sent.

- The attacker would need to know the specific operating system that
  the user was running in order to tailor the attack code properly;
if
  the attacker made an incorrect guess about the user's operating
  system platform, the attack would crash the user's Windows Media
  Player session, but not run code of the attacker's choice.

Patch Availability:
===================
- A patch is available to fix this vulnerability. Please read the
  Security Bulletin
  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms01-042.asp
  for information on obtaining this patch.
