Three vulnerabilities reported in Microsoft Access could each be exploited into allowing an attacker to execute code on an affected system.
Microsoft has released a security update to address three reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Access. The vulnerabilities were caused by the way that Microsoft Access handles memory when opening files, and each of them could be exploited into allowing an attacker to execute arbitrary code on an affected system.
