Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft Office.


The version of Microsoft Office installed on the remote host has a use-after-free vulnerability. A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted Word file, resulting in arbitrary code execution.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Office 2007 SP2, 2007 SP3, 2010, and 2010 SP1.
