Attack code published for third Word flaw

CNET "A third security flaw in Microsoft Word has emerged, according to some security companies, and a researcher has published code for it that could be used to launch an attack.
Secunia and McAfee said Thursday that a buffer-overflow flaw in the word-processing application could crash a computer and ultimately let an outsider run code on a vulnerable PC.
But Microsoft said it could not confirm the existence of the vulnerability on Thursday, noting that it was still investigating the issue. "
