PowerPoint Memory Corruption Vulnerability

Flaw within specially crafted PowerPoint files triggers a denial of service (crash) within the application

Malicious attackers may use specially created PowerPoint files to crash a victim's computer. There are actually three separate vulnerabilities that occur when the application uses data taken directly from a PowerPoint presentation file as a pointer when saving or closing a malformed presentation. A malicious attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory and manipulate the program flow, and could allow a remote attacker access to a compromised system.
