A vulnerability has been reported in Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications and Microsoft Office, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application loading libraries (e.g. imeshare.dll) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load an arbitrary library by tricking a user into opening an Office file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
NOTE: The vulnerability is currently being actively exploited in limited, targeted attacks primarily focused on Japanese organizations.
