Microsoft Windows Media Player (build 3802) Upgraded.
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 2/16/2005 08:12:00 PM.

Microsoft silently upgraded windows media player to build 3802.

Changes :

Microsoft said the update installs two components on end users’ computers and will add “additional integrity checks to the DRM [digital rights management] system.”

The company made no mention of a spyware infection, but a spokesperson confirmed the new version of the player was released after Microsoft confirmed that malicious hackers were using the copy-protection mechanism to install spyware, adware, dialers and computer viruses on unsuspecting PC users.

Security experts had earlier warned that .wmv files were being rigged to user the anti-piracy mechanism to shuttle users to Web sites hosting malicious programs.

The changes will also set up a mechanism for DRM license issuers to verify that each user’s computer has been updated before issuing or renewing licenses.

Microsoft urged users to update the Windows Media Format run-time components.
