The version of the .NET Framework installed on the remote host is reportedly affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A vulnerability exists in the way that affected components handle specially crafted OpenType fonts (OTF) that could lead to remote code execution. An attacker could leverage this issue by enticing a user to visit a web page containing a specially crafted OTF font file. (CVE-2013-3128)

- The .NET Framework is affected by a denial of service vulnerability when parsing a specially crafted document type definition (DTD) for XML data. (CVE-2013-3860)
