Vulnerablity Description
########################
Bound error occurs when parsing Palette Record and it causes Heap Overflow

#############
Attack Vector
#############
Arbitary Data will be overwritten to the heap, but arbitary data is highly depends on the stack status !
Result of heap overflow, you can overwrite 2 bytes to restricted range address ( not anywhere )
In *CERTAIN* environment( such as open excel file which is already opened)
    you can catch the flow by modify function pointer, but it doesn't have a reliablity at all
Let me know if you have a good method to break down

######
Result
######
DOS

#####
Notes
#####
You should modify pyExcelerator module because it doesn't generate Palette Record

pyExcelerator diff results would be like below

diff h:\study\pyexcelerator-0.6.3a\pyExcelerator-0.6.3a\build\lib\pyExcelerator\BIFFRecords.py pyExcelerator\BIFFRecords.py

>         self._rec_data += 'A' * 0xe0
