Description

Microsoft Office Excel 2007 Gold and SP1 does not properly delete the PWD (password) string from connections.xml when a .xlsx file is configured not to save the remote data session password, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information and obtain access to a remote data source, aka the "Excel Credential Caching Vulnerability."
