Vulnerability Details

Windows Media Player PNG Vulnerability - CVE-2006-0025

	A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Windows Media Player
	due to the way it handles the processing of PNG images. An attacker
	could exploit the vulnerability by constructing specially crafted
	Windows Media Player content that could potentially allow remote code
	execution if a user visits a malicious Web site or opens an email
	message with malicious content. An attacker who successfully exploited
	this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system.
