therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the

visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code in the context of the
current user. (CVE-2016-7205)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
ATMFD component due to improper handling of Open Type
fonts. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a
specially crafted website or open a specially crafted
file, resulting in the disclosure of sensitive
information. (CVE-2016-7210)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the
Windows Media Foundation due to improper handling of
objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to
visit a specially crafted website or open a specially
crafted document, resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
(CVE-2016-7217)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the
Windows font library due to improper handling of
embedded Open Type fonts. An unauthenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a
user to visit a specially crafted website or open a
specially crafted document, resulting in the execution
of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
