Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Microsoft Windows, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
1) An error in the way GDI (Graphics Device Interface) handles integer calculations when processing image file headers can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via an EMF or WMF image file with specially crafted header values (e.g. colour depth).
2) A boundary error in GDI when handling filename parameters in EMF files can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted EMF file.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities may allow execution of arbitrary code.
