Microsoft Office XP HTML Link Processing Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

A remote buffer overflow vulnerability affects Microsoft Office XP. The problem presents itself when an unsuspecting user follows a malicious HTML link that points to a Office document. A boundary condition error is exposed during this operation that may allow attacker-specified data to corrupt process memory.

An attacker may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of an unsuspecting user that follows a malicious embedded link.

Hello

Anyway if you have on your computer a good firewall and an antivirus, this shouldn't be a problem.

Now honestly, do you know a Microsoft product which does not have any bugs or some vulnerability issues or something?

They say that the new Windows, Longhorn, will be diffrent. We will see.
