MS15-079: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (3082442)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Internet Explorer installed on the remote host is
missing Cumulative Security Update 3082442. It is, therefore, affected
by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code
execution vulnerabilities. An attacker can exploit these
vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted
website.

Note that the majority of the vulnerabilities addressed by Cumulative
Security Update 3082442 are mitigated by the Enhanced Security
Configuration (ESC) mode which is enabled by default on Windows Server
2003, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, and 2012 R2.
