Three vulnerabilities were reported in Microsoft Office, each of which could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on an affected system upon successful exploitation.
Microsoft has released a security update to address three reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office. The vulnerabilities were caused by improper handling of objects in memory when processing WordPerfect document (.wpd) files, which may corrupt the system memory in a way that could allow an attacker to execute code on the system.
These issues have all been resolved in the latest update by correcting the way that Microsoft Office parses WordPerfect document files. Users are recommended to install the update onto their system as a protection measure against exploit attempts.
CVE-2013-0082, CVE-2013-1324, CVE-2013-1325
