Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through the
Microsoft GDI rendering engine.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Windows that has multiple
buffer overflow vulnerabilities when viewing VML, EMF, GIF, WMF and
BMP files that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on
the remote host.

To exploit these flaws, an attacker would need to send a malformed
image file to a user on the remote host and wait for him to open it
using an affected Microsoft application.
