files, which could possibly result in the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Description
===========

H D Moore discovered that Wine implements the insecure-by-design
SETABORTPROC GDI Escape function for Windows Metafile (WMF) files.

Impact

Metafile (WMF) file from within a Wine executed Windows application,
possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights
of the user running Wine.
