This is a stack-based buffer overflow in the animated cursor code. This attack is known to be vulnerable in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4 through Vista and allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (persistent reboot) via a malformed .ANI, .CUR or .ICO file, which results in memory corruption when processing cursors, animated cursors, and icons. The impact can result in providing an administrator access, as well as confidentiality, integrity, and availability violation.
