Attack code published for third Word flaw

A third security flaw in Microsoft Word has emerged, according to some security companies, and a researcher has published code for it that could be used to launch an attack. Secunia and McAfee said Thursday that a buffer overflow flaw in the word processing application could crash a computer and ultimately let an outsider run code on a vulnerable PC.

But Microsoft said it could not confirm the existence of the vulnerability on Thursday, noting that it was still investigating the issue. Attack code published for third Word flaw | Tech News on ZDNet
