Synopsis :

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

Description :

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

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in Microsoft
Office software due to improper handling of objects in
memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
these issues, by convincing a user to open a specially
crafted file, to execute arbitrary code in the context
of the current user. (CVE-2016-3313, CVE-2016-3316,
CVE-2016-3317, CVE-2016-3318)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in
Microsoft OneNote due to an unspecified flaw. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by
convincing a user to open a specially crafted OneNote
file, to disclose sensitive memory contents.
(CVE-2016-3315)
