MS09-062: Vulnerabilities in GDI+ Could Allow Remote Code Execution (957488) (uncredentialed check)

high Nessus Plugin ID 72908


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through the Microsoft GDI rendering engine.


The remote host has a version of SQL Server that may host the RSClientPrint ActiveX control that includes a copy of gdiplus.dll that is affected by multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities when viewing TIFF, PNG, BMP, and Office files that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host. Additionally, there is a GDI+ .NET API vulnerability that allows a malicious .NET application to gain unmanaged code execution privileges.

To exploit these flaws, an attacker would need to send a malformed image file to a user on the remote host and wait for them to open it using an affected Microsoft application.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for SQL Server 2000 and 2005.
