Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft
The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Word that may allow
arbitrary code to be run on this host.
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 word record
parsing handler would result in code execution.

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Word.
