<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application. A remote
attacker could also perform cross-site request forgery attacks, or
cause a Denial of Service.

</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
