|Title:||Microsoft Office Outlook Denial of Service Vulnerability (Mac OS X)|
|Summary:||Microsoft Office Outlook is prone to a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.|
Microsoft Office Outlook is prone to a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.
The flaw is due to the XML parser in Microsoft
Office does not properly detect recursion during entity expansion.
Successful exploitation will allow remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and persistent
application hang) via a crafted XML document.
Microsoft Outlook 2011 on Mac OS X.
A workaround is to add a rule blocking
XML DTD Entities (' an Outlook rule to permanently delete messages containing ' mitigates the attack.
