(Vendor Issues Fix) Microsoft Windows WMF Rendering Bug Lets Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015438
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1015438
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-4560   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 5 2006
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): Windows 2000 SP4, 2003 SP1, and XP SP2; and prior service packs
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Microsoft Windows in the graphics rendering engine. A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted Windows Metafile (WMF) image that, when loaded by the target user, will cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

The image file does not need to have a '.wmf' file extension, as the graphics rendering engine can detect the specific type of image file even if the file extension has been changed.

This vulnerability can be exploited via an HTML page.

A demonstration exploit is circulating in the wild.

A demonstration exploit for the Metasploit Framework is available at:
