Security Update for Microsoft Office (May 2017) (macOS)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is
affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The Microsoft Office application installed on the remote macOS or Mac
OS X host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by
a remote code execution vulnerability due to a failure to properly
handle objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted Office
document or visit a specially crafted website, to execute arbitrary
code in the context of the current user.
