MS10-088: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft PowerPoint Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2293386)
High Nessus Plugin ID 50529
SynopsisArbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft PowerPoint.
DescriptionThe remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft PowerPoint that is affected by several vulnerabilities :
- A buffer overflow exists in the way the application parses the PowerPoint file format, which can be abused to execute arbitrary code if an attacker can trick a user into opening a specially crafted PowerPoint 95 file using the affected application. Note that by default opening of such files is blocked in Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 Service Pack 3. (CVE-2010-2572)
- An integer underflow exists in the way the application parses the PowerPoint file format, which could lead to heap corruption and allow for arbitrary code execution when opening a specially crafted PowerPoint file.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for PowerPoint 2002 and 2003 as well as PowerPoint Viewer 2007.
