Vulnerability Details

Microsoft RichEdit Vulnerability - CVE-2006-1311:

   A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the RichEdit
   components provided with Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. An
   attacker could exploit this vulnerability when a user interacts with a
   malformed embedded OLE object within a Rich Text Format (RTF) file.

   If a user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker
   who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete
   control of an affected system. An attacker could then install
   programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with
   full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer
   user rights on the system could be less affected than users who
   operate with administrative user rights.
