Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Word.
The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Word
that is subject to a flaw that could allow arbitrary code to be run.
An attacker may 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 the remote computer and have him open it. Then a bug in the font
parsing handler would result in code execution.
