Microsoft Management Console (MMC) is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, which may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
MMC is an application that allows a user to perform administrative tasks. Through the use of various snap-ins, MMC can be used to configure Windows services, local users and groups, storage devices, and more.
By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g., a web page, an HTML email message, or an email attachment), an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user.
