MS15-124: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (3116180)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 87253
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 3116180. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues 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 Windows Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 8, RT, 2012, 8.1, RT 8.1, 2012 R2, and 10.
