Heap-based buffer overflow in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2002 SP3 and
2003 SP3, and PowerPoint in Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac, allows
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted structure in
a Notes container in a PowerPoint file that causes PowerPoint to read
more data than was allocated when creating a C++ object, leading to an
overwrite of a function pointer, aka "Heap Corruption Vulnerability."
