This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 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 3148531. It is, therefore, affected
by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code
execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit these issues by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted
website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context
of the current user.
