Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through WordPad.
The remote host contains a version of Microsoft WordPad that is
vulnerable to two security flaws.
To exploit these flaws an attacker would need to send a malformed Word
file to a victim on the remote host and wait for him to open the file
Opening the file with WordPad will trigger a buffer overflow that could
allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host with the
privileges of the user.
