MS16-116: Security Update in OLE Automation for VBScript Scripting Engine (3188724)

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


Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by a remote code execution
vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the
Microsoft OLE Automation mechanism and the VBScript Scripting
Engine due to improper handling of objects in memory. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a
user to visit a specially crafted website, to execute arbitrary code
in context of the current user.

Note that MS16-104 must also be installed in order to fully resolve
the vulnerability.
