06.13.2006 - MS06-027: Vulnerability in Microsoft Word Could Allow Remote Code Execution (917336)



View Microsoft-Office related news. A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Word using a malformed object pointer. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a specially crafted Word file that could allow remote code execution.

If a user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of the client workstation. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
