It is possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote Windows host using the Unicode Scripts Processor.


The 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.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, Vista, and 2008 as well as Microsoft Office XP, 2003, and 2007.
