An API function on the remote host has a code execution
The ShellExecute() API function on the remote host fails to properly
validate URLs, which could result in arbitrary code execution.
A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into making an
application (e.g. web browser) pass specially crafted data to the
vulnerable function, resulting in remote code execution.
