ASF format permits auto-opening URLs



Vulnerability

    ASF

Affected

    ASF

Description

    Cassius  found  following.   Using  ASF  editing  software you can
    insert auto opening URL's at any timestamp within a Microsoft  ASF
    file.    The tag will  cause your default  browser to open  to the
    URL when that part of the movie is viewed.

    This is not  exactly hidden from  the user but  it could still  be
    used to track certain types of videos to IP addresses or to  track
    the path of  a copyrighted movie  through a internet  distribution
    system.
