Synopsis

An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The Microsoft Office application installed on the remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist in Microsoft Office software due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted file, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3313, CVE-2016-3316, CVE-2016-3317, CVE-2016-3318)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Microsoft OneNote due to an unspecified flaw. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted OneNote file, to disclose sensitive memory contents.
(CVE-2016-3315)
