Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is running a version of the Windows kernel that is
affected by a remote code execution vulnerability. Specially crafted
TrueType fonts are not properly handled, which could allow arbitrary
code execution in kernel mode. A remote attacker could exploit this
vulnerability by tricking a user into viewing a specially crafted
TrueType font (e.g., via web or email).

This vulnerability is reportedly being exploited in the wild by the Duqu
malware.
