DESCRIPTION

The Windows Media Player software can read SSPL (Server-Side Playlists) files provided by a RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) server. Theses files can indicate audio or video files to play.

However, if Windows Media Player opens a malicious audio file received via SSPL, a memory corruption occurs.

An attacker can therefore provide a malicious RTSP stream in order to execute code on computers of victims using Windows Media Player.
