Microsoft has released an advisory for a remote code execution vulnerability in Microsoft Office. It is currently being reported to target only Microsoft Excel at this point. However according to Microsoft's advisory: "While we are currently only aware that Excel is the current attack vector, other Office applications are potentially vulnerable." It has a CVE entry of CVE-2007-0671, although I could not find it in the database at this time and there is very limited information available. The advisory applies to the following products:
Office 2004 for Mac
Office 2004 v. X for Mac
Just keep reminding folks to exercise caution when opening attachments received via email or documents found on the internet.
