Revision Note: V1.2 (September 10, 2008): Bulletin updated: Added entry to Update FAQ to clarify why non-vulnerable versions of Microsoft Office can be offered this update.Summary: This critical security update resolves one privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft Word that could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted Word file. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
