Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a font driver that is affected by a
privilege escalation vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Windows host contains a version of the OpenType Compact
Font Format (CFF) Font Driver that fails to properly validate certain
data passed from user mode to kernel mode.

A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into viewing
content rendered in a specially crafted CFF font (via vectors such as
web, instant message, or email), resulting in arbitrary code execution
in kernel mode.
