MS16-023: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (3142015)

High Nessus Plugin ID 89746


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 3142015. 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, 2012, 8.1, RT 8.1, 2012 R2, and 10.
