Description

The Microsoft Office application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

  • An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Microsoft Excel due to improper disclosure of contents in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted file, to obtain information for further compromise the system. (CVE-2019-1263)

  • A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Microsoft Excel due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted file, to execute arbitrary commands. (CVE-2019-1297)
