Description

Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.5.1, and 4, and Silverlight 4 before 4.1.10111, does not properly restrict access to memory associated with unmanaged objects, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via (1) a crafted XAML browser application (aka XBAP), (2) a crafted ASP.NET application, (3) a crafted .NET Framework application, or (4) a crafted Silverlight application, aka ".NET Framework Unmanaged Objects Vulnerability."
