High Nessus Plugin ID 52584
SynopsisArbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft Office.
DescriptionThe remote Windows host contains a version of Microsoft Groove 2007 that incorrectly restricts the path used for loading external libraries.
If an attacker can trick a user on the affected system into opening a specially crafted Groove-related file located in the same network directory as a specially crafted dynamic link library (DLL) file, he may be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a patch for Groove 2007.
