Description

The VBScript scripting engine installed on the remote Windows host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to improper handling of objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit this issue by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted Microsoft Office document, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
