MS08-012: Vulnerability in Microsoft Publisher Could Allow Remote Code Execution (947085)
High Nessus Plugin ID 31046
SynopsisArbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft Publisher.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of Microsoft Publisher that may allow arbitrary code to be run on this host.
To succeed, the attacker would have to send a rogue file to a user of the remote computer and have him open it. Then a bug in the font parsing handler would result in code execution.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Publisher 2000, XP and 2003.
