Microsoft Word Workspace Memory Corruption Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

Microsoft Word is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability.

An attacker could exploit this issue by enticing a victim to open a malicious Word file.

Successfully exploiting this issue would allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the currently logged-in user.

NOTE: Successful exploits of this issue may be hampered because Microsoft Office 2007 and Office 2003 SP3 will not open some older Office file formats, including Office for Macintosh documents. Exploits of this issue involve the Macintosh file format.
