DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported in Microsoft Windows, which can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the color
management module when validating ICC profile format tags. This can
be exploited to cause a buffer overflow by e.g. tricking a user into
visiting a malicious web site or view a malicious e-mail message
containing a specially crafted image file.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

NOTE: According to Microsoft, the vulnerability is already being
exploited.

SOLUTION:
Apply patches.
