Vulnerability in Graphics Rendering Engine could allow remote code execution

Microsoft is investigating new public reports of a vulnerability in the Windows Graphics Rendering Engine. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code in the security context of the logged-on user. 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.

For more information on this issue, including potential causes, workarounds, and resolutions, see: Microsoft KB Article KB2490606.
