Vulnerability Information

Multiple Windows Media Parsing Remote Code Execution Vulnerabilities

Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in Microsoft Windows. The
vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user opens specially 
crafted media content that is hosted on a website. To exploit the 
vulnerabilities, an attacker could host media content on a website or send an
attachment in an email and then convince a user to open it.

An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could take control
of an affected system remotely. 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.

The security update addresses the vulnerabilities by correcting how Windows 
handles resources in the media library.

The following table contains links to the standard entry for each 
vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list:

Vulnerability Title 						CVE number 	Publicly disclosed 	Exploited

Windows Media Parsing Remote Code Execution Vulnerability 	CVE-2016-0101	No 			No

Windows Media Parsing Remote Code Execution Vulnerability 	CVE-2016-0098	No 			No
