    "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."
