    Vulnerability Description A remote code execution vulnerability has been reported in Microsoft Color Control Panel.
    Update/Patch AvaliableApply patches from: MS12-012
    Vulnerability DetailsThe vulnerability is due to the way the application improperly restricts the path used when loading external libraries. A remote attacker could exploit this issue by convincing a user to open a legitimate file (such as an .icm or .icc file) that is located in the same network directory as a specially crafted dynamic link library (DLL) file. Successful exploitation could allow an attacker to take complete control of an affected system.
