Security Update for Microsoft Office Products (July 2017)

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


Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by
multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.

Description :

The Microsoft Office application, Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack,
or Microsoft Excel Viewer installed on the remote Windows host is
missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
remote code execution vulnerabilities due to improper handling of
objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
these vulnerabilities, by convincing a user to open a specially
crafted document or to visit a specially crafted website, to execute
arbitrary code in the context of the current user.

Note that KB2880514 for Office 2007 and KB3203468 for Office 2010 SP2
are only applicable to Office installations with the Galician language
pack installed.
