Opening a specially crafted Microsoft Office file could result in arbitrary code execution.


The remote Windows host does not include ClickOnce application file types in the Windows Packager unsafe file type list.

An attacker could leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user on the affected host if he can trick the user into opening a Microsoft Office file with a malicious ClickOnce application embedded in it.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
