MS16-053: Cumulative Security Update for JScript and VBScript (3156764)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple remote code execution

Description :

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

Solution :

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista, 2008, and
Server Core 2008 R2. Alternatively, apply the workaround referenced in
the vendor advisory.
