Rule Category

FILE-IMAGE -- Snort detected suspicious traffic targeting vulnerabilities found inside images files, regardless of delivery method, targeted software, or image type. (Examples include: jpg, png, gif, bmp). These rules search for malformed images used to exploit system. Attackers alter image attributes, often to include shell code, so they are susceptible to vulnerabilities when they are parsed and send commands instead of loading the image.

Alert Message

FILE-IMAGE Microsoft GDI WMF file parsing integer overflow attempt

Rule Explanation

Integer overflow in GDI in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP2 and SP3, Server 2003 SP1 and SP2, Vista Gold and SP1, and Server 2008 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a malformed header in a crafted WMF file, which triggers a buffer overflow, aka "GDI Integer Overflow Vulnerability."
