The remote Windows host is affected by a code execution vulnerability in the Windows Backup Manager.


The remote Windows host contains a version of the Windows Backup Manager that incorrectly restricts the path used for loading external libraries.

If an attacker can trick a user into opening a specially crafted Windows Backup manager file that is located in the same network directory as a specially crafted dynamic link library file, he may be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.


Microsoft has released a patch for Windows Vista.
