MS13-012: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Exchange Server Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2809279)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 64573
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.


The remote mail server has multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Microsoft Exchange installed on the remote host is affected by multiple code execution vulnerabilities.

The vulnerabilities exist in the Oracle Outside In libraries, used by the WebReady Document Viewing feature of Outlook Web App (OWA). An attacker could exploit this by sending a malicious email attachment to a user who views it in OWA, resulting in arbitrary code execution as LocalService.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Exchange 2007 SP3 and 2010 SP2.
