Description


A vulnerability has been reported in Microsoft Office OneNote, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to missing input validation when processing a URI using the "onenote://" protocol handler. This can be exploited to e.g. place files on a user's system in semi-arbitrary locations or obtain all OneNote Notebooks from the user's system via a specially crafted OneNote URI.

NOTE: According to the vendor, the vulnerability exists in a shared Office component, but can only be exploited on systems with OneNote 2007 installed.
