Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft
The version of Microsoft Visio Viewer installed on the remote Windows
host is reportedly affected by a memory corruption vulnerability due
to the way the application handles memory when parsing specially
crafted Visio files.
An attacker who tricked a user on the affected host into opening a
specially crafted Visio file could leverage this issue to execute
arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
