Microsoft Internet Explorer WMF Image Parsing Memory Corruption Vulnerability

Microsoft Internet Explorer is affected by an WMF image-parsing memory-corruption vulnerability. This issue is allegedly due to an integer-overflow flaw that leads to corrupted heap memory.

This problem presents itself when a user views a malicious WMF-formatted file containing specially crafted data.

This issue allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of the affected application. Failed exploitation attempts likely result in crashing the application.
