VOLT Security Issue
Posted: Thu Sep 16, 2010 1:02 pm
Earlier this week the program manager for Microsoft's Typography Group posted a message to the OpenType list:
This vulnerability does not affect our software, so no worries if you've never heard of Microsoft VOLTSi wrote:VOLT includes various supplemental files including a version of USP10.dll (AKA as Uniscribe) users can optionally use that .dll for font testing fonts (for example by copying it into a folder along with a copy of notepad.exe).
Based on today's security advisory we would recommend avoiding using that DLL. For more details see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS10-063 - Critical.
In the coming days we'll replace the current VOLT download with one that does not include Uniscribe.
