A vulnerability has been reported in Microsoft Office Publisher, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error in calculating object handler data when opening files created in older versions of Publisher. This can be exploited to corrupt memory and cause an invalid value to be dereferenced as a pointer via a specially crafted Publisher file.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
