Microsoft Releases “Office Visualization Tool” for Security Researchers

 
OffVis is an Microsoft Office binary file format visualization tool to help IT Pros, security researchers, and malware protection vendors better understand the OLESS-based binary file formats to deconstruct attacks and understand the vulnerabilities we fix for protection purposes. 
 
It’s an easy GUI to use to generically browse around and show the hex view of the raw file contents on disk (left half of screen) with the hierarchical view of the file as Office parses it (right half of screen).  It can also generically detect a handful of publicly-exploited vulnerabilities as it reads the file.
