Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft
The remote Windows host has a version of Microsoft PowerPoint that is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities that could lead to arbitrary
code execution :
- A memory corruption vulnerability exists due to the
application's failure to properly handle memory during
function calls while parsing a specially crafted
PowerPoint file. (CVE-2011-1269)
- A buffer overflow can be triggered when the application
encounters a memory handling error while parsing a
specially crafted PowerPoint file. (CVE-2011-1270)
If a remote attacker can trick a user into opening a malicious
PowerPoint file using the affected install, either of these
vulnerabilities could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject
to the user's privileges.

Microsoft has released a set of patches for PowerPoint 2002, 2003,
and 2007 as well as Office Compatibility Pack.
