Description

<html><body><p>Resolves a vulnerability in the Microsoft .NET Framework that could allow remote code execution on a client system if a user views a specially crafted webpage by using a web browser that can run XAML Browser Applications (XBAPs).</p><h2></h2><div class="kb-notice-section section"><span class="text-base">Important</span> In response to customer feedback that we received after the original release of this update on April 10, 2012, this update was revised and re-released on June 12, 2012. <br/><br/><span class="text-base">Note</span>  If you previously installed hotfix 2702327 to address printing issues in Windows Forms and are now installing this re-release of this security update, you may see that installing this update does not change the version number of the files that are installed. Additionally, this update is not displayed in the Add or Remove Programs option of Control Panel. This behavior is expected because hotfix 2702327 contains a more recent file version of the installed files and supersedes this re-release.</div><h2>Introduction</h2><div class="kb-summary-section section">Microsoft has released the security bulletin MS12-025.
