This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft

Description :

The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft Office that
is potentially affected by two vulnerabilities :

loading external libraries when opening documents that
use the .doc, .xls, or .ppt Office binary format and

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)
