    • (May 05, 2010) Microsoft has released security advisory SA983438. Microsoft is investigating new public reports of a possible vulnerability in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. The vulnerability could allow an attacker to run arbitrary script that could result in elevation of privilege within the SharePoint site, as opposed to elevation of privilege within the workstation or server environment. This vulnerability definition implements the Microsoft suggested action work around to restrict access to the SharePoint Help.aspx which will prevent exploitation of the vulnerability using this attack vector.
