Microsoft Windows Enhanced Metafile Format image rendering routines contain a buffer overflow flaw that may allow an attacker to cause a denial-of-service condition.
Microsoft describes the Enhanced Metafile Format (EMF) as the following:
An EMF image is a 32-bit format that can contain both vector information and bitmap information. This format is an improvement over the Windows Metafile Format and contains extended features. For more information about image types and formats, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 320314. Additional information about these file formats is also available at the MSDN Library Web Site.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker may cause an affected application to stop responding or crash.
