MS13-060: Vulnerability in Unicode Scripts Processor Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2850869)

High Nessus Plugin ID 69325


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


The version of Microsoft Windows installed on the remote host includes a vulnerable version of the Unicode Script Processor, also known as Uniscribe. Some font types are not parsed correctly, which can result in memory corruption. An attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into viewing a specially crafted web page or opening a file containing malicious OpenType fonts, resulting in arbitrary code execution.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP and 2003.
