Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-134 Security Update for Windows Media Center to Address Remote Code Execution This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The more severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if Windows Media Center opens a specially crafted Media Center link (.mcl) file that references malicious code. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. Customers whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights.
Vulnerabilities addressed in this bulletin:
  • Media Center Library Parsing RCE Vulnerability

- Metasploit Modules Related To CVE-2015-6127

MS15-134 Microsoft Windows Media Center MCL Information Disclosure
This module exploits a vulnerability found in Windows Media Center. It allows an MCL file to render itself as an HTML document in the local machine zone by Internet Explorer, which can be used to leak files on the target machine. Please be aware that if this exploit is used against a patched Windows, it can cause the computer to be very slow or unresponsive (100% CPU). It seems to be related to how the exploit uses the URL attribute in order to render itself as an HTML file.
