1) Introduction
===============

WPS Office (an acronym for Writer, Presentation and Spreadsheets,[2] previously known as Kingsoft Office) is an office

suite for Microsoft Windows, Linux,[1] iOS[3] and Android OS,[4] developed by Zhuhai-basedChinese software developer Kingsoft.

WPS Office is a suite of software which is made up of three primary components: WPS Writer, WPS Presentation, and WPS Spreadsheet.

The personal basic version is free to use, but a watermark is printed on all printed output after the 30 day trial ends.

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of WPS.
