Microsoft Security Bulletin MS13-081 - Critical

Vulnerabilities in Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2870008)

Published: | Updated:

Version: 2.0

General Information

Executive Summary

This security update resolves seven privately reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The most severe of these vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views shared content that embeds OpenType or TrueType font files. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could take complete control of an affected system.

This security update is rated Critical for all supported releases of Microsoft Windows except Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows RT 8.1. For more information, see the subsection, Affected and Non-Affected Software, in this section.

The security update addresses these vulnerabilities by correcting the way that Windows handles specially crafted OpenType Font files and specially crafted TrueType Font (TTF) files, and by correcting the way that Windows handles objects in memory. For more information about the vulnerabilities, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) subsection for the specific vulnerability entry under the next section, Vulnerability Information.

Recommendation. Most customers have automatic updating enabled and will not need to take any action because this security update will be downloaded and installed automatically. Customers who have not enabled automatic updating need to check for updates and install this update manually. For information about specific configuration options in automatic updating, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 294871.

For administrators and enterprise installations, or end users who want to install this security update manually, Microsoft recommends that customers apply the update immediately using update management software, or by checking for updates using the Microsoft Update service.
