An application installed on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities.


The version of Microsoft Office installed on the remote Mac OS X host is affected by multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to open a specially crafted Office file, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Office for Mac 2011, Word for Mac 2011, Office 2016 for Mac, Word 2016, Excel 2016 for Mac, PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, and Outlook 2016 for Mac.
