Microsoft Security Advisory 2490606
Microsoft released Security Advisory 2490606 to address a publicly disclosed vulnerability affecting Microsoft Windows Graphics Rendering Engine on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP. The vulnerability does not affect Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
Microsoft is not currently aware of any affected customers or of any active attacks, which could occur from visiting a specially crafted malicious Web page or opening a malicious Word or PowerPoint file. Accounts configured as a limited user (fewer user rights) would be less affected by an attack then those running as administrator. Be sure to apply the latest Microsoft security updates to help make sure that your computer is as protected as possible.
Additional information is available in the MSRC post and the Security Advisory, linked below.
