MS09-005: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Visio Could Allow Remote Code Execution (957634)

High Nessus Plugin ID 35633


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Visio.


The remote host contains a version of Microsoft Visio that is affected by memory corruption and memory validation vulnerabilities triggered when parsing specially crafted Visio files that could be be abused to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
