MS07-060: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Word Could Allow Remote Code Execution (942695)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Word that may 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.
