Event Viewer Snapin multiple DLL side loading vulnerabilities

Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Multiple DLL side loading vulnerabilities were found in the Event Viewer
Snapin that ships with Windows. These issues can be exploited by loading
various COM components as an embedded OLE object. When instantiating
vulnerable object Windows will try to load the DLL elsext.dll from the
current working directory. If an attacker convinces the user to open a
specially crafted (Office) document from a directory also containing the
attacker's DLL file, it is possible to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the target user. This can potentially result in the
attacker taking complete control of the affected system.
