MS16-142: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (3198467)

High Nessus Plugin ID 94643


The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Internet Explorer installed on the remote Windows host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3198467. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, 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.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Internet Explorer 9, 10, and 11.
