MS KB2490606: Vulnerability in Graphics Rendering Engine Could Allow Remote Code Execution
High Nessus Plugin ID 51424
SynopsisIt may be possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote host using the graphics rendering engine.
DescriptionIf a remote attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted bitmap file, the attacker could leverage an as-yet unpatched vulnerability in the graphics rendering engine that arises due to its failure to validate the 'biClrUsed' parameter and thereby execute arbitrary code on the host subject to the user's privileges.
SolutionConsider applying the workaround provided by Microsoft.
Note, though, that applying the workaround will lead to some media files not being displayed correctly.
