Description

The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Publisher that is subject to a flaw that could allow arbitrary code to be run.

An attacker may use this to execute arbitrary code on this host.

To succeed, the attacker would have to send a rogue file to a user of the remote computer and have it open it. Then a bug in the font parsing handler would result in code execution.
