This one could be the bad one:

MS14-038

Vulnerability in Windows Journal Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2975689) 

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted Journal file. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

Please plan and patch accordingly
