high Nessus Plugin ID 55135


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


The remote Mac OS X host has a version of Microsoft Office that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities that could lead to arbitrary code execution.

If a remote attacker can trick a user into opening a malicious PowerPoint or Excel file using the affected install, these vulnerabilities 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, Office 2004 for Mac, and Open XML File Format Converter for Mac.
