Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Microsoft Office, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information and compromise a user's system.

1) An error exists when processing XML data, which can be exploited to e.g. disclose contents of certain local files by sending specially crafted XML data including external entity references.

2) Multiple unspecified errors can be exploited to cause memory corruption.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerabilities allows execution of arbitrary code
