Palo Alto Networks™, the network security company, today announced that its Threat Research Team discovered one of the critical vulnerabilities that Microsoft published in its Patch Tuesday security bulletin yesterday. Vulnerable systems are susceptible to an attacker taking complete control of them through commonly used media applications.

Microsoft credits Palo Alto Networks’ Threat Research Team for finding a remote code execution vulnerability that exists in the way the Microsoft MPEG Layer-3 codecs handle AVI media files. This vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opened a specially crafted AVI file containing an MPEG Layer-3 audio stream. If a user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability 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.

To view this vulnerability as a standard entry in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list, see CVE-2010-0480.

The Palo Alto Networks Threat Research Team is active in the research community, aggressively pursuing both new vulnerability research and mitigation of all types of threats. Leveraging its expert understanding of today’s applications, threats and how vulnerabilities get exploited, the team is a consistent contributor in support of Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday releases, including discovering seven Microsoft vulnerabilities in the past 10 months.

Palo Alto Networks’ next-generation firewall provides policy-based visibility and control over applications, users and content. Using this technology, enterprises can accurately identify and control applications, scan content to stop threats, and prevent data leakage – all with a single network device. By reducing the number of security devices in their networks, companies can save both capital expenditures and operational costs.

Information on the more than 950 applications that are identified by Palo Alto Networks can be found in Applipedia, part of the company’s Application and Threat Research Center.
