This is a good example of why I plan to make CVE's analysis field public
at some point.  See below for what happened.

ALSO NOTE - the advisory that's returned on "FG-2006-30" is actually
labeled as FGA-2005-17 and talks about that WMF issue from December 2005.
So there's clearly something wrong with their web site on this, probably
as a result of the advisory name switch.

I filled out the form at http://www.fortiguardcenter.com/sendfeedback.php
under "Report a broken link or network issue".  Maybe someone else could
fill out a similar complaint in a different category to maximize the
chance of success...

Microsoft Excel 2000, 2002, 2003, Viewer 2003, Office 2004 for Mac,
and Office v.X for Mac does not properly handle certain opcodes, which
allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a
crafted XLS file, which results in an "Improper Memory Access
Vulnerability."  NOTE: an early disclosure of this issue used
CVE-2006-3432, but only CVE-2007-0027 should be used.

ACCURACY: FG-2006-30 was originally published and used CVE-2006-3432,
but Microsoft had updated all CVEs to 2007 numbers before disclosure.
After MS07-002 was published, FG-2006-30 was changed to FGA-2007-01,
and used the new CVE-2007-0027 identifier.
