    "Microsoft Windows Live Messenger is reported prone to a remote
    denial-of-service vulnerability when handling malformed contact list (.ctt)
    files.

    A successful attack can result in a denial of service condition by crashing
    the application.

    Windows Live Messenger 8.0 is reported to be vulnerable. Other versions may
    be affected as well."
