MS11-094: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft PowerPoint Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2639142)

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 :

- The application insecurely restricts the path used for
loading external DLL files. This could lead to
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2011-3396)

- The application could cause memory to be corrupted when
reading an invalid record in a specially crafted
PowerPoint file. (CVE-2011-3413)

If a remote attacker can trick a user into opening a malicious
PowerPoint file using the the affected install, either vulnerability
could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's
privileges.
