Who is Vulnerable?
Vulnerability Description A remote code execution vulnerability has been reported in Microsoft Windows Media Player network sharing service.

The vulnerability is due to the way Microsoft Windows Media Network Sharing Service processes Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) packets.
