The vulnerability relates to how Internet Explorer interacts with Windows Media Player when the latter is used to perform media as part of a web page. By manipulating a document's elements an attacker can cause an object in memory to be reused after it has been freed. Depending on the attack, the object may be of type CMarkup (defined in MSHTML.dll) or of type CWMPPropUpdate (defined in wmp.dll). An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code under the context of the current process.
Microsoft has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
