Synopsis :

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

specially crafted Groove-related file located in the same network
directory as a specially crafted dynamic link library (DLL) file, he
may be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code subject
to the user's privileges.
