Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft

Description :

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 file to a user of
the remote computer and have it open it. Then a bug in the font parsing
handler would result in code execution.
