Microsoft WordPad is prone to a memory corruption vulnerability, because the Word 97 Text Converter does not properly parse certain structures in a Word 97 file. This vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers to execute arbitrary code, by enticing an unsuspecting user to open a specially crafted .DOC file with Microsoft WordPad. WARNING: This is an early release module. This is not the final version of this module. It is a pre-released version in order to deliver a module as quickly as possible to our customers that may be useful in some situations.
