MS08-011: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Works File Converter Could Allow Remote Code Execution (947081)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Office Works
Converter 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 him open it. Then a bug in the wps
header handler would result in code execution.
