Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in Microsoft WMI Administrative Tools, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to the "AddContextRef()" and "ReleaseContext()" methods in the WMI Object Viewer Control (WBEM.SingleViewCtrl.1) using a value passed in the "lCtxHandle" parameter as an object pointer.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.1 (WBEMSingleView.ocx 1.50.1131.0). Other versions may also be affected.
