Synopsis

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

Description

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)

Solution

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.
