Medium Nessus Plugin ID 71321


The remote Windows host is affected by a security feature bypass vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft Office that contains a shared component that is affected by a security feature bypass. Successful exploitation of the issue can allow an attacker to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature.
An attacker would need to entice a victim to visit a specially crafted web page with a browser capable of instantiating COM components in order to trigger the issue.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010.
