Motorola Mobility has won an injunction against several Microsoft properties in Germany, including Windows 7, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, and even the Xbox 360 game console. After initially postponing the ruling, Judge Dr. Holger Kircher of the Landgericht Mannheim (Mannheim Regional Court) issued his ruling on four of Motorola's complaints against Microsoft, ultimately awarding the mobile device maker an injunction against Microsoft on two patents.
The reports of the vulnerability first surfaced after researcher Laurent Gaffie detailed the alleged threat and furnished the proof-of-concept code to make his case. Gaffie’s decision to go public with his findings without informing Microsoft hasn’t gone down well with the company.
After investigating the claims Microsoft acknowledged, in a blog post, that the proof-of-concept code does force WMP to crash but it can not be used for remote code execution.
