MS13-026: Vulnerability in Office Outlook for Mac Could Allow Information Disclosure (2813682) (Mac OS X)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 65217


An application installed on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Microsoft Outlook that allows content from a remote server to be loaded without user interaction when a user previews or opens a specially crafted HTML email message. This could allow an attacker to verify that an account is actively used and that the email had been viewed.


Microsoft has released patches for Office for Mac 2011 and Office 2008 for Mac.
