Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Microsoft Office, which can be exploited by malicious users to disclose sensitive information and bypass certain security restrictions and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and compromise a user's system.

1) A use-after-free error when processing calculatedColumnFormula objects can be exploited to corrupt memory.

2) An error when parsing UML can be exploited to corrupt memory via a specially crafted Visio file.

3) A use-after-free error the fileVersion element in the workbook can be exploited to corrupt memory.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities #1 through #3 may allow execution of arbitrary code.

4) Certain input related to the Office Web Apps Server is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

5) An error within the SharePoint InfoPath Forms Services when parsing the Document Type Definition of an XML file can be exploited to disclose the content of arbitrary files.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires write permissions to the site and that "InfoPath Services" is enabled.
