High Nessus Plugin ID 81757

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: 8.9


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


The remote Windows host has a version of Microsoft Office, Office Compatibility Pack, Microsoft Word Viewer, Microsoft Excel Viewer, SharePoint Server, or Microsoft Office Web Apps that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due to incorrectly handling objects and rich text format files in memory. A remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to open a specially crafted file using the affected software, resulting in execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2015-0085, CVE-2015-0086, CVE-2015-0097)

- Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities exist due to improperly sanitized requests to affected SharePoint servers. An authenticated attacker, via a specially crafted request, can exploit these vulnerabilities to execute script code in the security context of the current user. (CVE-2015-1633, CVE-2015-1636)


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