High Nessus Plugin ID 73982


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A vulnerability exists in the way that Windows loads .dll files that could allow remote code execution if a crafted .dll file is in the same directory as an Office file being opened. When exploiting this vulnerability, an attacker could gain the same user permissions as the current user. (Proofing tools in Office 2007 SP3, Office 2010 SP1/SP2 for Simplified Chinese, Proofing tools in Office 2013 SP0/SP1)

- The remote Windows host is potentially affected by a vulnerability in the way Office handles responses to opening remote network Office files. When exploiting this vulnerability, an attacker could gain the access token used to authenticate the user on a Microsoft online service. (Office 2013 SP0/SP1)


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Office 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2013 RT.
