This module exploits an untrusted program execution vulnerability within the Winds3D Player from AwingSoft. The Winds3D Player is a browser plugin for IE (ActiveX), Opera (DLL) and Firefox (XPI). By setting the 'SceneURL' parameter to the URL to an executable, an attacker can execute arbitrary code.
