The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an attacker shares maliciously crafted content, such as a file or program, as a presentation in Lync or Communicator and then convinces a user to accept an invitation to view or share the presentable content. In all cases, an attacker would have no way to force users to view or share the attacker-controlled file or program. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to take action, typically by getting them to accept an invitation in Lync or Communicator to view or share the presentable content.
