Synopsis :

A flaw in the Microsoft Collaboration Data Object could allow an
attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.

Description :

An unchecked buffer condition could allow an attacker to execute
arbitrary code on the remote host.

via SMTP to the remote host, either by using the SMTP server (if
Exchange is installed) or by sending an email to a user on the remote
host.

When the email is processed by CDO, an unchecked buffer may allow cause
code execution.
