Detail

Severity Rating: Critical
Revision Note: V1.0 (February 9, 2016): Bulletin published.
Summary: This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The more severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if Microsoft Windows PDF Library improperly handles application programming interface (API) calls, which could allow an attacker to run arbitrary code on the user?s system. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current user. Customers whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights. However, an attacker would have no way to force users to download or open a malicious PDF document.
