MS07-046: Vulnerability in GDI Could Allow Remote Code Execution (938829)

High Nessus Plugin ID 25884


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host by sending a malformed file to a victim.


The remote host contains a version of Microsoft Windows that has several vulnerabilities in the Graphic Rendering Engine and in the way Windows handles Metafiles.

An attacker may exploit these flaws to execute arbitrary code on the remote host. To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send a specially crafted image to a user on the remote host, or lure him into visiting a rogue website containing such a file.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista.
