MS07-014: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Word Could Allow Remote Code Execution (929434)

high Nessus Plugin ID 24338


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft Word.


The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Word that could allow arbitrary code to be run.

To succeed, the attacker would have to send a rogue file to a user of the remote computer and have it open it. Then a bug in the font parsing handler would result in code execution.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Word 2000, XP and 2003.
