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


Synopsis :

The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Internet Explorer installed on the remote Windows host
is missing Cumulative Security Update 3198467. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote
code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a
specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary
code in the context of the current user.
