DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Microsoft Office
Excel, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain
escalated privileges or by malicious people to compromise a user's
system.

1) Insufficient input validation when parsing a certain record type
may lead to a variety of errors including corruption of data on the
stack.

2) An uninitialised variable being used while copying data during
parsing of certain records may cause a buffer overflow.

3) An unspecified error when parsing certain records can be exploited
to corrupt memory.

4) An error when parsing OBJ records can be exploited to cause a
stack-based buffer overflow.

5) An unspecified error when parsing certain records can be exploited
to corrupt memory.

6) An unspecified error when parsing certain records can be exploited
to corrupt memory.

7) An unspecified error when parsing RTD records can be exploited to
corrupt memory.

8) An unspecified error when parsing certain records can be exploited
to corrupt memory.

9) An unspecified error when parsing HFPicture records can be
exploited to corrupt memory.

10) An unspecified error when parsing certain records can be
exploited to corrupt memory.

11) An unspecified error when parsing certain records can be
exploited to corrupt memory.

12) An unspecified error when parsing chart sheet substreams can be
exploited to corrupt memory.

13) An unspecified error when parsing certain records can be
exploited to corrupt memory.

Successful exploitation of vulnerabilities #1 through #13 may allow
execution of arbitrary code.

14) Open XML File Format Converter for Mac installs itself
insecurely, changing the file system ACLs on the "/Applications"
folder in a way that allows all access to the files in the folder.
This can e.g. be exploited by local users to replace files with
malicious executables and wait for another user to run them.

SOLUTION:
Apply patches.
