MS11-036: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft PowerPoint Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2545814)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

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 the affected install, either of these
vulnerabilities could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject
to the user's privileges.
