Microsoft Office Malformed String Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

Microsoft Office is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability. This issue occurs when the application processes maliciously crafted files.

This issue is currently being exploited via Excel files (.xls), but other Office applications may also be vulnerable.

An attacker could exploit this issue by enticing a victim into opening a malicious Office file. If the vulnerability is successfully exploited, this could result in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the currently logged-in user.
