High Nessus Plugin ID 51906


It may be possible to execute arbitrary code on the remote host using the graphics rendering engine.


If a remote attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted bitmap file, a vulnerability in the graphics rendering engine that arises due to its failure to validate the 'biClrUsed' parameter could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code on the host subject to the user's privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008.
