MS13-085: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Excel Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2885080) (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 70340


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


The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Microsoft Excel that is affected by two memory corruption vulnerabilities.

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


Microsoft has released a patch for Office for Mac 2011.
