    Bulletin Severity Rating:Critical - This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user visits a network share (or visits a web site that points to a network share) containing a specially crafted OpenType font (OTF). In all cases, however, an attacker would have no way to force a user to visit such a web site or network share. Instead, an attacker would have to convince a user to visit the web site or network share, typically by getting them to click a link in an e-mail message or Instant Messenger message.
