DescriptionThe version of Microsoft Windows or Microsoft Office on the remote host includes a version of the Unicode Script Processor (Usp10.dll), also known as Uniscribe, which incorrectly validates a table in OpenType fonts.
If an attacker can trick a user on the affected system into visiting a malicious website or opening a specially crafted document with an application that supports embedded OpenType fonts, such as Microsoft Office, this issue could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
