The remote installation of Microsoft Office is vulnerable to an
information disclosure flaw.
The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Office that is
subject to an information disclosure flaw.
When a user clicks on a special CDO URL, an attacker could inject a
client side script that could be used to disclose information.
To succeed, the attacker would have to send a rogue CDO URL to a user
of the remote computer and have it click it.
