    Vulnerability description

    Windows Shell for Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP1 and SP2, and Server 2003 allows remote user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary commands via a crafted shortcut (.lnk) file with long font properties that lead to a buffer overflow when the user views the file's properties using Windows Explorer, a different vulnerability than CVE-2005-2122.
