I will also note if Eset recommended anti-ransoware HIPS rules are deployed in regards to MS Office apps, this vulnerability can't be exploited;


In current attack chains, the use of the Block all Office applications from creating child processes attack surface reduction rule prevents the vulnerability from being exploited
