MS12-060 – Critical : Vulnerability in Windows Common Controls Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2720573) – Version: 1.2

Severity Rating: Critical
Revision Note: V1.2 (August 22, 2012): Corrected the update replacement information for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services Service Pack 4. This is an informational change only. There were no changes to the detection logic or the update files.
Summary: This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Windows common controls. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user visits a website containing specially crafted content designed to exploit the vulnerability. In all cases, however, an attacker would have no way to force users to visit such a website. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to visit the website, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message or Instant Messenger message that takes them to the attacker’s website. The malicious file could be sent as an email attachment as well, but the attacker would have to convince the user to open the attachment in order to exploit the vulnerability.
