    For anyone wondering why this Fixit doesn't work on/apply to their systems (like mine), it may be because you don't have any MS Office components installed:

    The exploit depends on a Microsoft Office DLL which has been compiled without Adress Space Layout Randomization (ALSR) to locate the right memory segment to attack, but this DLL is extremely common and most likely will not lower the affected population by much.
