MS07-036: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Excel Could Allow Remote Code Execution (936542)

High Nessus Plugin ID 25687


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


The remote host is running a version of Microsoft Excel that may 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 with Microsoft Excel.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Excel 2000, XP, 2003 and 2007.
