Media

Media modules provide security updates and media feature updates without requiring a full system image update. Media components are a frequent target of attacks (many recent security bugs are media related), so tightening security by accelerating updates for security bugs and features should reduce the number of security bugs that can be exploited by attacks. The media framework remains extensible; partners can continue to extend media codecs and media format extractors.
