high Nessus Plugin ID 79830


The remote host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host has a version of Microsoft Office, Microsoft Word, Office Compatibility Pack, Microsoft Word Viewer, SharePoint Server, or Microsoft Office Web Apps that is affected by one or more remote code execution vulnerabilities due to Microsoft Word improperly handling objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to open a specially crafted Office file, resulting in execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Office 2007, 2010, 2013, Office Compatibility Pack, Microsoft Word Viewer, SharePoint Server, and Office Web Apps.
