Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution
vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing an security update. It is,
therefore, affected by a flaw in Windows Mail and Windows Meeting
Space related to the search path that is used when loading dynamic
link library (DLL) files. This path may include directories that are
not trusted or under user control. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this, by inserting a crafted Trojan horse DLL file into
the search path, to execute arbitrary code with privileges of the
user.
