Microsoft Office 365 Unsupported Channel Version Detection

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 97085


The remote host contains an unsupported Channel version of Microsoft Office 365.


According to its Channel version, the installation of Microsoft Office 365 on the remote Windows host is no longer supported.

Once a new version of the Monthly Channel or the Semi-annual Channel (Targeted) is released, the previous version is no longer supported.
Only the two latest versions of the Semi-annual Channel are supported.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities.


Upgrade to a Channel version of Microsoft Office 365 that is currently supported.
