Synopsis :

It is possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.

Description :

The remote host contains a version of the Windows kernel that is
affected by vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to
improper validation of input passed from user mode
through the kernel component of GDI. Successful
exploitation requires that a user on the affected host
view a specially crafted EMF or WMF image file, perhaps
by being tricked into visiting a malicious website,
and could lead to a complete system compromise.

- A local privilege escalation vulnerability exists due to
the way the kernel validates handles. (CVE-2009-0082)

- A local privilege escalation vulnerability exists due to
improper handling of a specially crafted invalid pointer.
