Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Explorer.
The remote version of Windows is vulnerable to a bug in the way it
handles compressed (zipped) folders, that could in turn be exploited by
an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send a specially crafted
.zip file to a victim on the remote host and wait for him to browse the
file using the Windows Explorer.
