    "Microsoft HLINK.DLL is prone to a memory-corruption vulnerability. This
    issue is due to the library's failure to properly bounds-check
    user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory
    buffer.

    Successfully exploiting this issue allows attackers to execute arbitrary
    machine code in the context of applications that use the affected library.
    This facilitates the remote compromise of affected computers. Failed
    exploit attempts will likely crash targeted applications.

    This issue has been shown to be exploitable through Microsoft Excel files.
    Other applications using the affected library may also be affected."
