MS16-121: Security Update for Microsoft Office (3194063)

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


Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote host is affected by a remote
code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The Microsoft Office application installed on the remote Windows host
is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a remote
code execution vulnerability due to improper handling of RTF files. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this by convincing a user
to open a specially crafted Office file, resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
