Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in Microsoft Windows. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger an object memory handling flaw in Windows Text Services and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-0081]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can create a specially crafted DLL. When the target user opens a file from the same working directory as the DLL file, the DLL will be loaded and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2015-0096].

[Editor's note: HP reported that MS15-020 issued on March 10, 2015 corrects the vulnerability (CVE-2015-9906) originally identified as CVE-2010-2568 (Alert ID 1024216) in July 2010 and as exploited in the Stuxnet worm.]

Impact:   A remote user can create a file that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
