Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft
The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft Office that
is potentially affected by two vulnerabilities :
- The application insecurely restricts the path used for
loading external libraries when opening documents that
use the .doc, .xls, or .ppt Office binary format and
when the Office File Validation Add-in is not
installed. This could lead to arbitrary code execution.
- The application may use an uninitialized object pointer
when opening a Word document, which could lead to
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2011-1982)
