The remote host is affected by multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host has a version of Microsoft Office, Microsoft Word, Office Compatibility Pack, Microsoft Word Viewer, SharePoint Server, or Microsoft Office Web Apps that is affected by one or more unspecified memory corruption vulnerabilities. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted file, it may be possible for a remote attacker to take complete control of the system or execute arbitrary code.
