MS16-147: Security Update for Microsoft Uniscribe (3204063)

High Nessus Plugin ID 95766


The remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in Windows Uniscribe due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted document, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 2012, 8.1, RT 8.1, 2012 R2, 10, and 2016.
