Windows Media player is vulnerable in it's handling of PNG images.

Microsoft rates his vulnerability as critical. It allows remote code execution.
Attack vectors of both email and web are possible through the use of .wmz files.

Workarounds will be based on content filetring in gateways, but might be below par on effectiveness if you count encrypted messages and the like as possible exploit vectors.
