MS09-017 / MS09-021 / MS09-027: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Could Allow Remote Code Execution (967340 / 969462 / 969514) (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 50062


An application installed on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Microsoft Office that is affected by several vulnerabilities.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted Excel, PowerPoint, or Word file, these issues could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Office 2004 for Mac, Office 2008 for Mac, and Open XML File Format Converter for Mac.
