Microsoft VM INativeServices could allow unauthorized memory access
|msvm-inativeservices-memory-access (10582)||Medium Risk|
A vulnerability in the INativeServices methods in Microsoft VM could allow a remote attacker to gain unauthorized access to memory on a victim's system. The INativeServices methods accept memory addresses as arguments, which could allow a remote attacker to create a malicious Java Applet that uses these methods to access memory on a victim's computer. This could allow the attacker to obtain sensitive information, including the user's cookies, visited Web sites, as well as other information that could then be used to launch further attacks against the affected system. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by hosting the malicious Java Applet on a Web site or by sending it to a potential victim within an HTML email.
