|word-viewer-ocx-bo (34027)||High Risk|

By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web page that passes an overly long argument to the DoOleCommand, FTPDownloadFile, FTPUploadFile, HttpUploadFile, GotoPage, Save, or SaveWebFile method, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the victim's browser to crash.
