Microsoft Office is a package that provides word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, e-mail, and calendaring capabilities for Microsoft Windows workstations. The suite ships with a set of image processing helper libraries known as graphics filters that support various image formats including FlashPix (FPX).
A buffer overflow vulnerability in the way Microsoft Office handles FlashPix image files allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by enticing a user to insert a malicious FlashPix image file into an Office document.
Apply the patches referenced in Microsoft Security Bulletin 10-105.
Exploit works on Microsoft Office XP SP3 and requires the user to insert the FPX image file in a Word document.
