MS16-070: Security Update for Microsoft Office (3163610)

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


Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office :

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due
to improper handling of objects in memory. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these by
convincing a user to open a specially crafted file or
visit a website that hosts such a file, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code in the context of the user.
(CVE-2016-0025, CVE-2016-3233)

- An flaw exists due to improper disclosure of memory
contents. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this by convincing a user to open a specially
crafted file, resulting in the disclosure of potentially
sensitive information. (CVE-2016-3234)

- A flaw exists due to improper validation of input
before loading OLE library files. A local attacker can
exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-3235)
