Summary


This security update resolves a vulnerability in Windows that could allow remote code execution if an attacker successfully convinces a user to browse to a specially crafted website, open a specially crafted file, or browse to a working directory that contains a specially crafted Enhanced Metafile (EMF) image file. However, in every case an attacker would have no way to force users to take such actions. An attacker would have to convince users to do this. Typically, the attacker would do this by using enticements in email or instant messaging (IM) messages.
