- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due to a failure to properly access objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3289, CVE-2016-3293, CVE-2016-3319, CVE-2016-3322)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Chakra JavaScript engine due to improper handling of objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted Office document, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3296)

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist due to improper handling of objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the disclosure of sensitive information.
(CVE-2016-3326, CVE-2016-3327)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to improper handling of page content. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the disclosure of specific files on a user's system. (CVE-2016-3329)
