Microsoft's RichEdit contains a vulnerability that may allow an attacker to execute code.
From Murray Sargent's MSDN blog:
RichEdit 6.0 is a facility for getting plain/rich-text, single/multiline Unicode/ANSI edit controls and combo/list boxes in single world-wide binary that runs on all Windows operating systems.
A remote unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user who is running the vulnerable application.
Thanks to Microsoft for information that was used in this report. Microsoft in turn thanks Kostya Kortchinsky of Immunity, Inc., and Fabrice Desclaux of EADS Common Research Center for reporting this vulnerability.
