It is possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote Windows host
using the Embedded OpenType Font Engine.
The remote Windows host contains a version of the Embedded OpenType
(EOT) Font Engine that is affected by an integer overflow
vulnerability when parsing certain tables within specially crafted
files and content containing embedded fonts.
If an attacker can trick a user on the affected system into viewing
content rendered in a specially crafted EOT font, this issue could be
leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
