High Nessus Plugin ID 79831


The remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft Office that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to a use-after-free memory issue caused by Microsoft Word not properly 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 Microsoft Office 2007, 2010, and 2013.
