Synopsis

The version of Outlook installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Microsoft Outlook installed on the remote host is missing security updates. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that Microsoft Outlook parses specially crafted email messages. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could take control of an affected system to then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. (CVE-2017-0106)

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists in Microsoft Office software when it improperly handles the parsing of file formats. To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would have to convince a user to open a specially crafted file. (CVE-2017-0204)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists when Microsoft Office improperly validates input before loading dynamic link library (DLL) files. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take control of an affected system to then install programs;
view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. (CVE-2017-8506)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that Microsoft Outlook parses specially crafted email messages. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take control of an affected system.
