Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft
The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft PowerPoint
that is affected by several vulnerabilities :
- A buffer overflow exists in the way the application
parses the PowerPoint file format, which can be abused
to execute arbitrary code if an attacker can trick a
user into opening a specially crafted PowerPoint 95
file using the affected application. Note that by
default opening of such files is blocked in Microsoft
PowerPoint 2003 Service Pack 3. (CVE-2010-2572)
- An integer underflow exists in the way the application
parses the PowerPoint file format, which could lead to
heap corruption and allow for arbitrary code execution
when opening a specially crafted PowerPoint file.

2003 as well as PowerPoint Viewer 2007.
