I'm running :
- Windows 2000 5.00.2195 US
- Word 2000 9.0.2812 French
and was not abble to reproduce this behaviour on my
system. Note that I use it to test various product for
around 200 users with a happy mix of Win95/98/NT/2k french-english
(the base system is pure US, not multilanguage) and that
the mess that lie on my system doesn't allow me
to completly tell you the type/level of patch applied...

Subject: Word 2000 DDE error on Win2K
I was playing around with word this morning, and found something quite
interesting. I thought I'd post it to see what you all thought.
I'm not sure if this is a known bug in Word 2000, and I can't find out right
now as I don't have web access from my PC at work.
I can consistently crash Word 2000 using the following method:
1) Open up any text/document editor such as notepad or wordpad
2) type a single word (must be a known word, no punctuation).
3) highlight the whole word and CTRL+C
4) launch word 2000
6) press HOME to take you to the start of the line
7) type I
8) hit the space bar
this consistenly crashes word 2000 for me, and i get the following error
DDE Server Window: WINWORD.EXE - Application Error
The instruction at "0x3076a63e" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The
memory could not be "read".
I am running:
Word 2000 9.0.3821 SR-1
I doubt that this would be exploitable, but I thought I'd find out if any of
you could reproduce it.
