.NET Framework 4.6 allows side loading of Windows API Set DLL
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yorick Koster, February 2016

Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------
A DLL side loading vulnerability was found in the .NET Framework version
4.6 when running on Windows Vista or Windows 7. This issue can be
exploited by luring a victim into opening an Office document from the
attacker's share. An attacker can use this issue 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. If the
WebDAV Mini-Redirector is enabled, it is possible to exploit this issue
over the internet. This issue can be exploited even if the Office
document is opened in Protected View.
