Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft
The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Publisher that could
allow arbitrary code to be run.
To succeed, the attacker would have to send a rogue file to a user of
the remote computer and have it open it. Then a bug in the font parsing
handler would result in code execution.
