*** Windows Media Player Plugin: Local File Detection Vulnerability ***

A design flaw in Windows Media Player 11 allows a remote attacker to determine the presence of local files (programs, documents, etc.). I sent an e-mail to Microsoft (nearly a year ago) but they never responded…

Windows Media Player permits to open locally stored media-files. Opening non-supported files usually provokes an error message. By a simple HTTP-redirect, the error message can be circumvented. Local files can be opened. The file-opening-procedure can be controlled with the “Player.OpenStateChange Event”. If a file exists, event 8 (”MediaChanging”) is fired. This way, via JavaScript, a malicious web site could determine the presence of local (and remote) files.
