Description :

The remote Windows host has a version of Microsoft Office, Word, Word
Viewer, Excel, Excel Viewer, SharePoint, Microsoft Office
Compatibility Pack, or Office Web Apps installed that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due
to improper handling of objects in memory. A remote
attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing
a user to open a specially crafted file in Microsoft
Office, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in
the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-0022,
CVE-2016-0052, CVE-2016-0053, CVE-2016-0054,
CVE-2016-0055, CVE-2015-0056)

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in
SharePoint due to improper sanitization of specially
crafted web requests. An authenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this, via a specially crafted web request,
to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser
session. (CVE-2016-0039)
