Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Microsoft Silverlight, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

1) Some errors exist when parsing TrueType fonts.

For more information see vulnerabilities #1 and #2:
SA49120

2) A double-free error when rendering XAML glyphs can be exploited via a specially crafted Silverlight application.

NOTE: This vulnerability affects Silverlight version 4.x only.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities allows execution of arbitrary code.

Secunia reports Silverlight 5.0.6118.0 as insecure. Checking updates available in MS updates, MS report 'Silverlight (0)'. Who's right?
