SynopsisAn application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.

It is, therefore, affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted document or to visit a specially crafted website, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
