MS08-071: Vulnerabilities in GDI+ Could Allow Remote Code Execution (956802)
High Nessus Plugin ID 35070
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 is affected by multiple buffer oveflow vulnerabilities when viewing WMF files, that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send a malformed WMF 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.
