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

    Successfully exploiting this issue causes the affected application to crash,
    denying service to legitimate users. Attackers may also be able to execute
    arbitrary code in the context of targeted users, but this has not been
    confirmed."
