Subsequent to that release we have determined that the actions an attacker could take as a result of exploiting this vulnerability could include the ability to execute arbitrary code. As a result Microsoft has reissued this bulletin and changed the severity rating to Important. The original corrects the vulnerability and is not being re-released.
