MS15-044 and MS15-051: Description of the security update for Windows font drivers

Support for Windows Server 2003 ended on July 14, 2015

Microsoft ended support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. This change has affected your software updates and security options. Learn what this means for you and how to stay protected.

Summary
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Windows, the Microsoft .NET Framework, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Lync, and Microsoft Silverlight. The more severe of these vulnerabilities could allow for one of the following scenarios:
  • Remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted document or goes to an untrusted webpage that contains embedded TrueType fonts.
  • Elevation of privilege if an attacker logs on locally and runs arbitrary code in kernel mode. An attacker could then take the following actions:
    • Install programs
    • View, change, or delete data
    • Create new accounts that have full user rights
    An attacker must have valid logon credentials and be able to log on locally to exploit this vulnerability. The vulnerability cannot be exploited remotely or by anonymous users.
