eEye Digital Security has reported a vulnerability in Microsoft Office Publisher 2007, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the Publisher conversion library used for converting old Publisher formats (PUBCONV.DLL) calling a user-controlled function pointer. This can be exploited by tricking a user into viewing a specially crafted Publisher 98 legacy file containing an embedded textbox object.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
