Synopsis

An application installed on the remote 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 :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the the Click-to-Run (C2R) components due to improper handling of objects in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to obtain sensitive information and thereby bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. (CVE-2016-0137)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to Visual Basic macros improperly exporting a user's private key from the certificate store while saving a document.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to provide the saved document, to gain access to the user's private key. (CVE-2016-0141)

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in Microsoft Office software due to improper handling of objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit these, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted Office file, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3357, CVE-2016-3358, CVE-2016-3359, CVE-2016-3360, CVE-2016-3361, CVE-2016-3362, CVE-2016-3363, CVE-2016-3364, CVE-2016-3365, CVE-2016-3381)

- A spoofing vulnerability exists in Microsoft Outlook due to a failure to conform to RFC2046 and properly identify the end of a MIME attachment. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted email attachment, to cause antivirus or antispam security features to fail. (CVE-2016-3366)
