Zero Day Initiative Advisory 12-129

Authored by Tipping Point | Site zerodayinitiative.com

Zero Day Initiative Advisory 12-129 - This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code from the contact of kernelspace on vulnerable installations of Microsoft Windows. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file. The specific flaw exists within the kernel's support for TrueType font parsing of compound glyphs. A sign extension error exists in win32k.sys when processing compound glyphs having a total number of contours above 0x7FFF. This can be exploited to corrupt kernel heap memory placed below the space allocated for the "flags" buffer and potentially execute arbitrary code in kernel space.
