specially crafted document, resulting in the execution
of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.

in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-0170)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the
Windows Imaging component due to improper handling of
objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user t
visit a specially crafted website or open open a
