This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Microsoft Windows XP, Server and Vista. User interaction is required in that a user must open a malicious image file or browse to a malicious website.
The specific flaws exist in the GDI+ subsystem when parsing maliciously crafted GIF files. By supplying a malformed graphic control extension an attacker can trigger an exploitable memory corruption condition. Successful exploitation can result in arbitrary code execution under the credentials of the currently logged in user.
Microsoft has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
