<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
document, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
