The version of Microsoft Office installed on the remote host has multiple vulnerabilities.


The Publisher component of Microsoft Office installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- The application could allow overwriting function pointers in memory. (CVE-2011-1508)

- The application could allow indexing an out-of-bounds array in memory. (CVE-2011-3410)

- The application has an invalid pointer vulnerability.

- The application has a memory corruption vulnerability.

A remote attacker could exploit these by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted Publisher file, resulting in remote code execution.
