specially crafted website or open a specially crafted
document file, to disclose the contents of memory.

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in
the Windows Graphics Component due to improper handling
of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit
a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted
document file, to execute arbitrary code in the context
of the current user. (CVE-2016-7272, CVE-2016-7273)
