USSR Advisory Code: USSR-2000053
Public Disclosure Date:
September 26, 2000
Microsoft Windows Media Player 7
The USSR Team has found a problem in the Windows Media Player 7
ActiveX control, which could be used in a denial of service attack
against RTF-enabled e-mail clients such as Outlook 2000 and Outlook
If the affected control were programmatically embedded into an RTF
mail and then sent to another user, the user's mail client would
fail when he closed/moved the mail.
We take no responsibility for this code. It is for educational
