The remote Windows host is affected by a security feature bypass
The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft Office that
contains a shared component (MSCOMCTL common controls library) that is
affected by a security feature bypass. Successful exploitation of the
issue could allow an attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout
Randomization (ASLR) security feature. An attacker would need to
entice a victim to visit a specially crafted web page with a browser
capable of instantiating COM components in order to exploit the issue.
