MS14-036: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Graphics Component Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2967487)

high Nessus Plugin ID 74428
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The version of Microsoft's Graphics Component installed on the remote host is affected by code execution vulnerabilities due to the way GDI+ handles image record types in specially crafted files. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit these issues by tricking a user into viewing content that contains malicious files, which could result in arbitrary code execution.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Server 2003, Vista, Server 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, 8.1, 2012, 2012 R2, Office 2007, Office 2010, Live Meeting 2007 Console, Lync 2010, Lync 2010 Attendee, Lync 2013, and Lync Basic 2013.
