The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Microsoft Excel that
is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- Two memory corruption vulnerabilities exist due to the
way the application handles objects in memory when
parsing Office files. (CVE-2013-1315 / CVE-2013-3158)
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to
the way the application parses XML files containing
external entities. (CVE-2013-3159)
If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a
specially crafted Excel file, it may be possible to leverage these
issues to read arbitrary files on the target system or execute
arbitrary code, subject to the user's privileges.
