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 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.
A specially crafted file can trigger an integer underflow [CVE-2010-2573].
Specially crafted Rich Text Format (RTF) data can trigger a stack overflow [CVE-2010-3333].
Specially crafted art drawing records can trigger code execution [CVE-2010-3334].
Specially crafted drawing data can trigger code execution [CVE-2010-3335].
Specially crafted Office files can trigger code execution [CVE-2010-3336].
A remote user can create a specially crafted DLL. If the DLL is in a working directory when the target user opens an Office file from the same working directory, the DLL may be executed [CVE-2010-3337].
