Vulnerabilities in DirectX Allows Code Execution (MS08-033)
------------------------------------------------------------------------


SUMMARY

This security update resolves two privately reported vulnerabilities in
Microsoft DirectX that could allow remote code execution if a user opens a
specially crafted media file. An attacker who successfully exploited
either of these vulnerabilities could take complete control of an affected
system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete
data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts
are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less
impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

This security update is rated Critical for all supported editions of
Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista,
and Windows Server 2008. For more information, see the subsection,
Affected and Non-Affected Software, of this section.
