MS11-094: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft PowerPoint Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2639142)
High Nessus Plugin ID 57280
SynopsisArbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft PowerPoint.
DescriptionThe remote Windows host has a version of Microsoft PowerPoint that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- The application insecurely restricts the path used for loading external DLL files. This could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2011-3396)
- The application could cause memory to be corrupted when reading an invalid record in a specially crafted PowerPoint file. (CVE-2011-3413)
If a remote attacker can trick a user into opening a malicious PowerPoint file using the affected install, either vulnerability can be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for PowerPoint 2007 and 2010, PowerPoint Viewer 2007, and Office Compatibility Pack.
