MS15-056: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (3058515)

high Nessus Plugin ID 84053
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Internet Explorer installed on the remote host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3058515. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website.

Note that the majority of the vulnerabilities addressed by Cumulative Security Update 3058515 are mitigated by the Enhanced Security Configuration (ESC) mode which is enabled by default on Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, and 2012 R2.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11.
