Microsoft Office 2000 UA Control Vulnerability

MIcrosoft Office 2000 and related individual packages (eg., Microsoft Word 2000) have a feature called "Show Me" as part of the built-in help, which makes use of an ActiveX control (Office 2000 UA Control). This function was incorrectly flagged as "safe for scripting" and, although undocumented, could be used by a malicious web site operator to execute any commands in Microsoft Office 2000. It provides the ability to script almost all Office 2000 functions including file manipulation, configuration settings, etc.
