Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host by sending a
malformed file to a victim.
The remote host contains a version of Microsoft Windows that is missing
a critical security update that fixes several vulnerabilities in the
Graphic Rendering Engine, and in the way Windows handles Metafiles.
An attacker may exploit these flaws to execute arbitrary code on the
remote host. To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send a
specially crafted image to a user on the remote host, or lure him into
visiting a rogue website containing such a file.
