    Security Update for the Windows Meta File Vulnerability

    Vulnerability in Graphics Rendering Engine Could Allow Remote Code Execution (912919)

    A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Graphics Rendering Engine because of the way that it handles Windows Metafile (WMF) images. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a specially crafted WMF image that could potentially allow remote code execution if a user visited a malicious Web site or opened a specially crafted attachment in e-mail. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system.

    Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 and Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2

    Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
