Microsoft Word security flaw

By Derek Sooman on October 7, 2004, 2:08 PM
A security hole has been found in Microsoft Word versions 2000 and 2002. This flaw could lead to a user's system being compromised. It is due to an input validation error within the parsing mechanism for document files. It can be used to crash the process. It can perhaps also be used to execute arbitrary code, although this remains unproved.
