MS15-093: Security Update for Internet Explorer (3088903)

high Nessus Plugin ID 85540


The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The version of Internet Explorer installed on the remote host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3088903. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to a memory corruption issue caused by improper accessing of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.


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