MS08-052: Vulnerabilities in GDI+ Could Allow Remote Code Execution (954593)
High Nessus Plugin ID 34120
SynopsisArbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through the Microsoft GDI rendering engine.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of Windows that has multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities when viewing VML, EMF, GIF, WMF and BMP files that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
To exploit these flaws, an attacker would need to send a malformed image file to a user on the remote host and wait for him to open it using an affected Microsoft application.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista and 2008.
