12.20.2012 - MS12-078 - Critical : Vulnerabilities in Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2783534) - Version: 2.0



View Microsoft related news. Severity Rating: Critical
Revision Note: V2.0 (December 20, 2012): Rereleased update KB2753842 to resolve an issue with OpenType fonts not properly rendering after the original update was installed. Customers who have successfully installed the original KB2753842 update need to reinstall the update.
Summary: This security update resolves one publicly disclosed vulnerability and one privately reported vulnerability in Windows. The most severe of these vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted document or visits a malicious webpage that embeds TrueType or OpenType font files. An attacker would have to convince users to visit the website, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message that takes them to the attacker's website.
