High Nessus Plugin ID 35822

Synopsis

It is possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.

Description

The remote host contains a version of the Windows kernel that is affected by vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to improper validation of input passed from user mode through the kernel component of GDI. Successful exploitation requires that a user on the affected host view a specially crafted EMF or WMF image file, perhaps by being tricked into visiting a malicious website, and could lead to a complete system compromise.
(CVE-2009-0081)

- A local privilege escalation vulnerability exists due to the way the kernel validates handles. (CVE-2009-0082)

- A local privilege escalation vulnerability exists due to improper handling of a specially crafted invalid pointer.
(CVE-2009-0083)
