Microsoft Office Malformed PNG File Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

Microsoft Office is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability when handling a malformed PNG graphic file.

The issue occurs when an Office application such as Excel, Word, or PowerPoint tries to open a malformed PNG graphic file.

An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause memory corruption and subsequently to execute malicious code in the context of the user running the affected application.
