"Microsoft Office is prone to a weakness that may allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary script code contained in Shockwave Flash Objects without
first requiring confirmation from users.

A successful attack may allow attackers to access sensitive information and
potentially execute malicious commands on a vulnerable computer."
