Windows Media Player Issues

According to multiple sources, there are unpatched remote vulnerabilities in Windows Media Player 6.4 and Windows Media Player Classic 6.4 with public PoC's reported on Saturday.  The public PoC generates files with this type of name: SYS_49152_MP4_for_mplayer2.mp4.  Windows Media Player 6.4 is used for Win95 and WinNT systems (see http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/version64/default.aspx) so hopefully this does not affect very many of our readers.

Thanks to Juha-Matti for bringing this to our attention.
