Security Updates for Exchange (October 2018)

High Nessus Plugin ID 118008


The Microsoft Exchange Server installed on the remote host is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


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

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when
Microsoft Exchange Outlook Web Access (OWA) fails to
properly handle web requests. An attacker who
successfully exploited this vulnerability could perform
script/content injection attacks and attempt to trick
the user into disclosing sensitive information.

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way
Microsoft Exchange software parses specially crafted
email messages. An attacker who successfully exploited
the vulnerability could run arbitrary code in the
context of the system user. An attacker could then
install programs; view, change, add, or delete data.


Microsoft has released the following security update to address this
