MS03-035: Word Macros may run automatically (827653)

This script is Copyright (C) 2003-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through VBA.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Word that contains a
flaw in its handling of macro command execution. An attacker could use
this to execute arbitrary code on this host.

To succeed, the attacker would have to send a rogue Word file to a user
of this computer and have him open it. Then the macros contained in the
Word file would bypass the security model of Word and be executed.
