Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple remote code execution
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple remote code execution
vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to
improper handling of the loading of dynamic link library
(DLL) files. A remote attacker can exploit this
vulnerability by placing a specially crafted DLL file in
a user's current working directory and then convincing
the user to launch a program designed to load the DLL,
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the
context of the current user. (CVE-2015-2368)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in
Microsoft Windows Media Device Manager due to improper

current working directory and then convincing the user
to open a specially crafted .RTF file, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code in the context of the
current user. (CVE-2015-2369)
