Microsoft Security Bulletin MS10-033 resolves two privately reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows through security update KB979482.
These vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution through crafted media files or streaming content from a website or any application that delivers web content, if opened by a user. Then the attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to gain the same user rights as the user. More serious damage could occur if the user running the system has administrative rights.
