MS09-062: Vulnerabilities in GDI+ Could Allow Remote Code Execution (957488)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


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 is affected by
multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities when viewing TIFF, PNG, BMP,
and Office files that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code
on the remote host. Additionally, there is a GDI+ .NET API
vulnerability that allows a malicious .NET application to gain unmanaged
code execution privileges.

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