Microsoft Word 2007 WWLib.DLL Unspecified Document File Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Microsoft Word is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

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

Successful exploits may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the currently logged-in user. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in denial-of-service conditions.
