<html><body><p>Resolves a vulnerability in Windows that could allow remote code execution if an attacker successfully convinces a user to browse to a specially crafted website that accepts user-provided online content, or convinces a user to open specially crafted content.</p><h2>Summary</h2><div class="kb-summary-section section">This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an attacker successfully convinces a user to browse to a specially crafted website that accepts user-provided online content, or convinces a user to open specially crafted content. An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights. <br/><br/>To learn more about the vulnerability, see <a href="https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/ms16-057" id="kb-link-2" target="_self">Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-057</a>. </div><h2>More Information</h2><div class="kb-moreinformation-section section"><span class="text-base">Important </span><ul class="sbody-free_list"><li>All future security and non-security updates for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 require update <a href="https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2919355" id="kb-link-3" target="_self">2919355</a> to be installed.
