A vulnerability has been discovered in Microsoft Office for Mac, which could allow for remote code execution. In an email attack scenario, an attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending a specially crafted file to a user and convincing the user to open the file. In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a website (or leverage a compromised website that accepts or hosts user-provided content) that contains a specially crafted file designed to exploit this vulnerability. An attacker would have no way to force users to visit the website. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to click a link, typically by way of an enticement in an email or instant message, and then convince them to open the specially crafted file.
