Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in Microsoft GDI. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted Windows Metafile (WMF) image file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A specially crafted header can trigger an integer overflow [CVE-2008-2249].

A specially crafted file size parameter can trigger a heap overflow [CVE-2008-3465].

Jun Mao of VeriSign iDefense Labs reported this integer overflow vulnerability. Juan Caballero working with the Bitblaze group at Carnegie Mellon University and UC Berkeley reported the heap overflow vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can create a WMF file that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   The vendor has issued the following fixes:
