Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Microsoft Office. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted file that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-1642, CVE-2015-2467, CVE-2015-2468, CVE-2015-2469, CVE-2015-2477].

A remote user that can exploit a separate vulnerability in Internet Explorer running in Enhanced Protection Mode (EPM) can supply a specially crafted command line parameter to Excel, Notepad, PowerPoint, Visio, or Word to view files at a medium integrity level [CVE-2015-2423].

A remote user can create a specially crafted template that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-2466].

A remote user can create a specially crafted file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger an integer underflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-2470].

Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs, Yong Chuan Koh (@yongchuank) of MWR Labs (@mwrlabs), s3tm3m@gmail.com (via VeriSign iDefense Labs), and Steven Vittitoe of Google Project Zero reported these vulnerabilities.
