Microsoft Word RTF Template Macro Execution Vulnerability

by platon on May 27th, 2001 Microsoft Word does not properly check for macros in RTF template documents. If a user accesses an RTF document linking to a RTF based template with embedded macros, the macros could execute with out prompting the user first.



Microsoft has released a patch for Word 2000 and Word 97 which rectifies this issue. The patches for the additional vulnerable versions will be released at a later date. The release date is not yet known.
