Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through the Office
The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Office that could
allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send a specially
crafted file to a user on the remote host and wait for him to open it
using Microsoft Office.
When opening the malformed file, Microsoft Office will encounter a
buffer overflow which may be exploited to execute arbitrary code.
