Microsoft PowerPoint Malformed Object Pointer Vulnerability

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:476

PowerPoint in Microsoft Office 2000 XP 2003 2004 for Mac and v.X for Mac does not properly parse the slide notes field in a document which allows remote user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted data in this field which triggers an erroneous object pointer calculation that uses data from within the document. NOTE: this issue is different than other PowerPoint vulnerabilities including CVE-2006-4694.
