The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to improper parsing of fonts by Uniscribe. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to open a specially crafted document or visit an untrusted website that contains specially crafted embedded fonts, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
