The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution
The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in
Windows Journal due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by
convincing a user to open a specially crafted Journal file, resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
