MS12-012: Vulnerability in Color Control Panel Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2643719)

High Nessus Plugin ID 57946


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote Windows host through Windows Color Control Panel.


The remote host contains a version of Windows Color Control Panel that is affected by an insecure library loading vulnerability.

A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into opening a .camp, .cdmp, .gmmp, .icc, or .icm file in a directory that also contains a malicious 'sti.dll' file, resulting in arbitrary code execution.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 2008, and 2008 R2.
