The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution
The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the
VBScript engine due to improper handling of objects in memory. An
attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit
a specially crafted website or open a Microsoft Office document
containing an embedded ActiveX control, resulting in execution of
arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
