Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Microsoft Office 2010 SP2, Office Compatibility Pack SP3, Office Web Apps Server 2010 SP2, Word 2007 SP3, Word 2010 SP2, and Word Automation Services on SharePoint Server 2010 SP2 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted document, aka "Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability." This vulnerability is different from those described in CVE-2017-0006, CVE-2017-0019, CVE-2017-0020, CVE-2017-0031, CVE-2017-0052, and CVE-2017-0053.
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
