Description:   Several 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 create a specially crafted Office document 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.

A malformed string, chart record, or SmartTag can trigger these flaws.

Microsoft credits Dejun Meng of Fortinet, Arnaud Dovi and TippingPoint, and Sowhat of Nevis Labs with reporting these vulnerabilities.
