MS10-087: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2423930) (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 50531


An application installed on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Microsoft Office that is affected by several vulnerabilities.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted Office file, these issues could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Office for Mac 2011, Office 2008 for Mac, and Open XML File Format Converter for Mac.
