Summary

Integer overflow in GDI in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP2 and SP3, Server 2003 SP1 and SP2, Vista Gold and SP1, and Server 2008 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a malformed header in a crafted WMF file, which triggers a buffer overflow, aka "GDI Integer Overflow Vulnerability."

descriptionThe remote host is running a version of Windows that is affected by multiple buffer oveflow vulnerabilities when viewing WMF files, that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host. To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send a malformed WMF file to a user on the remote host and wait for him to open it using an affected Microsoft application.
