The specific flaw exists within the parsing of ASX meta files. When the code within wmp.dll attempts to process the version string within a meta file, it copies it to a fixed-length buffer on the stack without checking that the destination can contain the input data. This can be abused remotely by attackers to execute arbitrary code under the context of the user running the media application.
Microsoft has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
