MS10-063: Vulnerability in Unicode Scripts Processor Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2320113)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

It is possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote Windows host
using the Unicode Scripts Processor.

Description :

The version of Microsoft Windows or Microsoft Office on the remote
host includes a version of the Unicode Script Processor (Usp10.dll),
also known as Uniscribe, which incorrectly validates a table in
OpenType fonts.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected system into visiting a
malicious website or opening a specially crafted document with an
application that supports embedded OpenType fonts, such as Microsoft
Office, this issue could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code
subject to the user's privileges.
