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

Description :

is missing Cumulative Security Update 4013073. It is, therefore,

remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote

visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
