Published Date: February 11, 2014

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 views 
a specially crafted webpage using Internet Explorer. An attacker would have
no way to force users to view specially crafted content. Instead, an attacker
would have to convince users to take action, typically by getting them to 
click a link in an email message or in an Instant Messenger message that 
takes users to an attacker's website, or by getting them to open an 
attachment sent through email.

This security update is rated Critical for all supported editions of Windows
7, Windows 2008 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows RT, Windows 8.1,
Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows RT 8.1.
