Vulnerability Information

Microsoft Video Control Remote Code Execution Vulnerability CVE-2016-0142

A remote code execution vulnerability exists when Microsoft Video Control 
fails to properly handle objects in memory. An attacker who successfully 
exploited the vulnerability could run arbitrary code in the context of the 
current user. If the current user is logged on with administrative user 
rights, an attacker could take control of the affected system. An attacker 
could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new 
accounts with full user rights. 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.

To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would have to convince a user to 
open either a specially crafted file or application from either a webpage or 
an email message. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how 
Microsoft Video Control handles objects in memory.

Note that where the severity is indicated as Critical in the Affected Software
and Vulnerability Severity Ratings table, the Preview Pane is an attack vector
for CVE-2016-0142.
