Microsoft Security Bulletin MS12-013 - Critical

Vulnerability in C Run-Time Library Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2654428)

Published Date: February 14, 2012

Version: 1.0

General Information

Executive Summary

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft
Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opens a
specially crafted media file that is hosted on a website or sent as an email
attachment. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain
the same user rights as the local user. Users whose accounts are configured to
have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who
operate with administrative user rights.

This security update is rated Critical for all supported editions of Windows
Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2. For more
information, see the subsection, Affected Software, in this section.

Vulnerability Information

Msvcrt.dll Buffer Overflow Vulnerability - CVE-2012-0150

A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that the msvcrt DLL
calculates the size of a buffer in memory, allowing data to be copied into
memory that has not been properly allocated. This vulnerability could allow
remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted media file. If a
user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully
exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system.
An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or
create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured
to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who
operate with administrative user rights.
