"Microsoft Word Font Parsing Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Lord Yup has reported a vulnerability in Microsoft Word, which can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the
parsing of fonts. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer
overflow by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted Word
document.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code."
