Security Advisory

1) Information disclosure

Severity: Low

CVSSv3: 3.8 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2017-0073

CWE-ID: CWE-200 - Information Exposure

Description

The vulnerability allows a local attacker to obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

The weakness exists due to improper handling of objects in memory by Windows Graphics Device Interface (GDI). A local attacker can run a specially crafted application and retrieve information from a targeted system.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may result in information disclosure on the vulnerable system.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
