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


The remote host contains a vulnerable version of Microsoft WordPad, Office, or Office Converter Pack. Opening a specially crafted Word 97 file can result in the execution of arbitrary code. A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into opening a malicious Word file.


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