VUPEN Security Research - Microsoft Office Excel Record Array Indexing 
Vulnerability (CVE-2010-3236)


Microsoft Office Excel is a powerful tool you can use to create and
format spreadsheets, and analyze and share information to make more
informed decisions. With the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface,
rich data visualization, and PivotTable views, professional-looking
charts are easier to create and use.


VUPEN Vulnerability Research Team discovered a critical vulnerability
in Microsoft Office Excel.

The vulnerability is caused by an array indexing error when processing
certain records in an Excel file, which could be exploited by remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into opening
a specially crafted Excel document.
