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