Microsoft Visio multiple DLL side loading vulnerabilities
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yorick Koster, August 2015

Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Multiple DLL side loading vulnerabilities were found in Microsoft Visio.
These issues can be exploited by loading various Visio COM components as
an embedded OLE object. When instantiating a vulnerable object Windows
will try to load the DLL msoutls.dll from the current working directory.
If an attacker convinces the user to open a specially crafted (Office)
document from a directory also containing the attacker's DLL file, it is
possible to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the target
user. This can potentially result in the attacker taking complete
control of the affected system.
