A remote user can create a specially crafted document that, when loaded by the target user, will cause arbitrary macro code to be executed with the privileges of the target user. Even systems that are configured to disable document macros are affected.

A remote user can create a specially crafted XML file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

The vulnerabilities were discovered through internal audits.
