Description

A denial of service vulnerability exists in Microsoft Windows when the Windows Adobe Type Manager Library improperly handles specially crafted OpenType fonts. For all systems except Windows 10, an attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could cause a denial of service condition. For systems running Windows 10, an attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could potentially cause the application to stop responding instead of the system.
