It is possible to elevate privileges on the remote host through
The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Microsoft Office for
Mac that is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability in the
way that folder permissions are set in certain installations. If an
attacker places a malicious executable in the Office 2011 folder and
lures a user into logging in and running that executable, he could
cause arbitrary code to be executed in the context of that user.
Note that this issue is primarily a risk on shared workstations, such
as in a library or an Internet cafe.
