MS14-024: Vulnerability in a Microsoft Common Control Could Allow Security Feature Bypass (2961033)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73983


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 (MSCOMCTL common controls library) that is affected by a security feature bypass. Successful exploitation of the issue could 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 exploit the issue.


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