MS patches Media Player secure music vulnerability

Microsoft has issued a cumulative patch for Windows Media Player designed to patch three vulnerabilities, the most serious of which might permit an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim’s PC.
An advisory by Microsoft says that the most serious of the three problems is an information disclosure vulnerability, which it rates as severe. The vulnerability results because of a flaw in how Windows Media Player handles certain types of licenses for secure media files when the media file is stored in the IE cache. Specifically, when a type of secure Windows Media file is opened, the media player erroneously returns information to the server that discloses the location of the IE cache.
