MS06-028: Vulnerability in Microsoft PowerPoint Could Allow Remote Code Execution (916768) (Mac OS X)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft
PowerPoint.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Microsoft PowerPoint that may
allow arbitrary code to be run.

To succeed, the attacker would have to send a rogue file to a user of
the remote computer and have it open it with PowerPoint. A
vulnerability in the font parsing handler would then result in code
execution.
