This vulnerability allows remote attackers to disclose sensitive information on vulnerable installations of Microsoft Excel. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file.
The specific flaw exists within the parsing of EmfMetafileHeader records. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of user-supplied data, which can result in a read past the end of an allocated buffer. An attacker can leverage this in conjunction with other vulnerabilities to execute code in the context of the current process.
Microsoft has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
