Vulnerability in Microsoft Visio Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2560847)
Published: July 12, 2011

Version: 1.0

General Information

Executive Summary

This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability in Microsoft 
Visio. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opens a 
legitimate Visio file that is located in the same network directory as a 
specially crafted library file. An attacker who successfully exploited this 
vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the logged-on user. Users 
whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be 
less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

This security update is rated Important for Microsoft Visio 2003 Service Pack 
3. For more information, see the subsection, Affected and Non-Affected 
Software, in this section.

Affected Software

Microsoft Visio 2003 Service Pack 3

Vulnerability Information

Microsoft Visio Insecure Library Loading Vulnerability - CVE-2010-3148

A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that Microsoft Visio 
handles the loading of DLL files. 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 impacted than users who operate 
with administrative user rights.
