3) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows,
which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's
system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an integer overflow error in the
"SetDIBitsToDevice()" function within gdi32.dll when processing

buffer overflow via an overly large biClrUsed field.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
