    Default Setting in Windows Media Player Digital Rights Management Could
    Allow a User to Open a Web Page Without Requesting Permission

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/892313.mspx

    Affects Media player 9 and 10

    What makes this bad is by using current IE exploits no user interaction
    would be required for someone to do bad things. If you download music
    or video files ..... be aware.
