Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through the web or email client.


The remote host is running a version of Windows that contains a flaw in the Windows XML Core Services.

An attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on the remote host by constructing a malicious script and enticing a victim to visit a website or view a specially crafted email message.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
