MS14-014 Vulnerability in Silverlight Could Allow Security Feature Bypass (2932677) Microsoft Silverlight Important 12-03-2014

Technical Information

Brief overview of the risk:
The vulnerability could allow security feature bypass if an attacker hosts a website that contains specially crafted Silverlight content that is designed to exploit the vulnerability, and then convinces a user to view the website. In all cases, however, an attacker would have no way to force users to visit a website. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to visit a website, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message or in an Instant Messenger message that takes them to the attacker’s website. It could also be possible to display specially crafted web content by using banner advertisements or by using other methods to deliver web content to affected systems.
Detailed Information on the risk:
A security feature bypass vulnerability exists in Silverlight due to improper implementation of Data Execution Protection (DEP) and Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR). The vulnerability could allow an attacker to bypass the DEP/ASLR security feature, most likely during or in the course of exploiting a remote code execution vulnerability.Further information on this exploit is available at : MS14-014
