CVSS Version 2 Metrics:

Per: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS10-028.mspx 'Users of Microsoft Office Visio 2002 and later versions of Visio will be prompted with Open, Save, or Cancel before opening a document. This is a mitigating factor because the vulnerability requires more than a single user action to complete the exploit.'
