MS13-072: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2845537)

High Nessus Plugin ID 69832

Synopsis

The Microsoft Office component installed on the remote host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft Office, Microsoft Word, Office Compatibility Pack, or Microsoft Word Viewer that is affected by the following remote code execution vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to the way the XML parser used by Word resolves external entities. (CVE-2013-3160)

- Remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due to memory corruption issues in the way that Microsoft Office parses files.
(CVE-2013-3847, CVE-2013-3848, CVE-2013-3849, CVE-2013-3850, CVE-2013-3851, CVE-2013-3852, CVE-2013-3853, CVE-2013-3854, CVE-2013-3855, CVE-2013-3856, CVE-2013-3857, CVE-2013-3858)

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted file, it may be possible to leverage these issues to read arbitrary files on the target system or execute arbitrary code, subject to the user's privileges.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Office 2003, 2007, 2010, Office Compatibility Pack, and Microsoft Word Viewer.
