Security Advisory

1) Memory corruption

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The weakness exists due to boundary error when parsing of the Excel spreadsheet file format. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted .xls file, trick the victim into opening it, trigger memory corruption and execute arbitrary code with privileges of the current user.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may result in arbitrary code execution on the vulnerable system.

Remediation

Install update from vendor's website.
