Vulnerability in DX Studio Player allows remote control of Windows machines
The Firefox plug-in for the 3D game development environment DX Studio has a critical vulnerability which could allow an attacker to take control of a victims Windows machine. For an attack to be successful, the victim must visit a web site with a malicious .dxstudio file. According to the advisory from Core Security, the plug-in for Internet Explorer is also affected, however, IE issues a warning message about the security implications of allowing the .dxstudio file to run. With Firefox, there is no such warning.
