New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 2.7
SynopsisThe remote Windows host is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.
DescriptionThe Microsoft Office installed on the remote host is affected by a security bypass vulnerability due to a failure to use the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. By convincing a user to open a specially crafted Office file, a remote attacker can use this flaw to predict the memory offsets of specific instructions in a given call stack. The attacker can then utilize this information to more easily exploit additional vulnerabilities.
SolutionMicrosoft has released a set of patches for Office 2007, 2010, and 2013.
