It is possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote Windows host
through the Canonical Display Driver.
A flaw exists in the way the Microsoft Canonical Display Driver
(cdd.dll) parses information copied from user mode to kernel mode.
If the Windows Aero theme is enabled, an attacker who tricks a user on
the affected host into viewing a specially crafted image using an
application that uses the APIs for GDI for rendering images can
leverage this issue to cause the affected system to stop responding
and restart or even to execute arbitrary code, although this is
unlikely due to memory randomization.
