    Summary: This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability in Windows DirectWrite. In an Instant Messenger-based attack scenario, the vulnerability could allow denial of service if an attacker sends a specially crafted sequence of Unicode characters directly to an Instant Messenger client. The target application could become unresponsive when DirectWrite renders the specially crafted sequence of Unicode characters.
