Synopsis :

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

Description :

on the remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by a memory corruption issue 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 or open a specially crafted Office file, to execute arbitrary
code in the context of the current user.
