MS11-060: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Visio Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2560978)

high Nessus Plugin ID 55790
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote Windows host through Visio.

Description

The remote host contains a version of Microsoft Visio that is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.

A remote attacker could exploit these issues by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted Microsoft Visio file, resulting in arbitrary code execution.

Solution

Microsoft has released patches for Visio 2003, 2007, and 2010.
