multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.
The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Microsoft Office that
is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A memory corruption vulnerability could be triggered
when parsing specially crafted RTF-formatted data.
- Several memory corruption vulnerabilities could be
triggered when reading a specially crafted Excel file.
(CVE-2012-0141 / CVE-2012-0142 / CVE-2012-0143 /
- A record parsing mismatch exists when opening a
specially crafted Excel file. (CVE-2012-1847)
