Improper Control of Generation of Code ('Code Injection')
Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2000 SP3, 2002 SP3, 2003 SP3, and 2007 SP1 and SP2; PowerPoint Viewer 2003 and 2007 SP1 and SP2; PowerPoint in Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac and 2008 for Mac; Open XML File Format Converter for Mac; Microsoft Works 8.5 and 9.0; and Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats SP1 and SP2 do not properly validate PowerPoint files, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via multiple crafted BuildList records that include ChartBuild containers, which triggers memory corruption, aka "Memory Corruption Vulnerability."
CWE-94 - Code Injection
Code injection is a type of vulnerability that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. This vulnerability fully compromises the machine and can cause a wide variety of security issues, such as unauthorized access to sensitive information, manipulation of data, denial of service attacks etc. Code injection is different from command injection in the fact that it is limited by the functionality of the injected language (e.g. PHP), as opposed to command injection, which leverages existing code to execute commands, usually within the context of a shell.
