MS16-133 – Important: Security Update for Microsoft Office (3199168) – Version:...

Microsoft Office Information Disclosure Vulnerability – CVE-2016-7233 An information disclosure vulnerability exists when Office or Word reads out of bound memory due to an uninitialized variable which could disclose the contents of memory.

An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could view out of bounds memory. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires that a user open a specially crafted file with an affected version of Microsoft Office software. The security update addresses the vulnerability by properly initializing the variable. The following table contains links to the standard entry for each vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list: Vulnerability title CVE number Publicly disclosed Exploited Microsoft Office Information Disclosure Vulnerability CVE-2016-7233 No No Mitigating Factors Microsoft has not identified any mitigating factors for this vulnerability. Workarounds Microsoft has not identified any workarounds for this vulnerability. Multiple Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerabilities Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in Microsoft Office software when the Office software fails to properly handle objects in memory.

An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could run arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
If the current user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker could take control of the affected system.

An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights. Exploitation of the vulnerabilities requires that a user open a specially crafted file with an affected version of Microsoft Office software.
In an email attack scenario an attacker could exploit the vulnerabilities by sending the specially crafted file to the user and convincing the user to open the file.
In a web-based attack scenario an attacker could host a website (or leverage a compromised website that accepts or hosts user-provided content) that contains a specially crafted file that is designed to exploit the vulnerabilities.

An attacker would have no way to force users to visit the website.
Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to click a link, typically by way of an enticement in an email or Instant Messenger message, and then convince them to open the specially crafted file. Note that the Preview Pane is not an attack vector for these vulnerabilities.

The security update addresses the vulnerabilities by correcting how Office handles objects in memory. The following table contains links to the standard entry for each vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list: Vulnerability title CVE number Publicly disclosed Exploited Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7213 No No Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7228 No No Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7229 No No Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7230 No No Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7231 No No Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7232 No No Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7234 No No Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7235 No No Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7236 No No Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability CVE-2016-7245 No No Mitigating Factors Microsoft has not identified any mitigating factors for these vulnerabilities. Workarounds Microsoft has not identified any workarounds for these vulnerabilities. Microsoft Office Denial of Service Vulnerability – CVE-2016-7244 A denial of service vulnerability exists when a specially crafted file is opened in Microsoft Office.

An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could cause Office to stop responding.  Note that the denial of service would not allow an attacker to execute code or to elevate their user rights. For an attack to be successful, this vulnerability requires that a user open a specially crafted file with an affected version of Microsoft Office.
In an email attack scenario, an attacker could exploit the vulnerability by sending a specially crafted file to the user and by convincing the user to open the file. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Microsoft Office handles objects in memory. The following table contains links to the standard entry for each vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list: Vulnerability title CVE number Publicly disclosed Exploited Microsoft Office Denial of Service Vulnerability CVE-2016-7244 No No Mitigating Factors Microsoft has not identified any mitigating factors for this vulnerability.

FAQ I am running Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, or Windows Server 2012 R2.

Does this mitigate these vulnerabilities?
 Yes.

By default, Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2 runs in a restricted mode that is known as Enhanced Security Configuration.

Enhanced Security Configuration is a group of preconfigured settings in Internet Explorer that can reduce the likelihood of a user or administrator downloading and running specially crafted web content on a server.

This is a mitigating factor for websites that you have not added to the Internet Explorer Trusted sites zone. Can EMET help mitigate attacks that attempt to exploit these vulnerabilities? Yes.

The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) enables users to manage security mitigation technologies that help make it more difficult for attackers to exploit memory corruption vulnerabilities in a given piece of software.

EMET can help mitigate attacks that attempt to exploit these vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer on systems where EMET is installed and configured to work with Internet Explorer. For more information about EMET, see the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit.

An attacker could also embed an ActiveX control marked "safe for initialization" in an application or Microsoft Office document that hosts the IE rendering engine.

The attacker could also take advantage of compromised websites and websites that accept or host user-provided content or advertisements.

These websites could contain specially crafted content that could exploit any of these vulnerabilities.
In all cases, however, an attacker would have no way to force users to view the attacker-controlled content.
Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to take action, typically by clicking a link in an email message or in an Instant Messenger message that takes users to the attacker's website, or by opening an attachment sent through email.In a web-based attack scenario where the user is using Internet Explorer in the Windows 8-style UI, an attacker would first need to compromise a website already listed in the Compatibility View (CV) list.

An attacker could then host a website that contains specially crafted Flash content designed to exploit any of these vulnerabilities through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website.

An attacker would have no way to force users to view the attacker-controlled content.
Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to take action, typically by clicking a link in an email message or in an Instant Messenger message that takes users to the attacker's website, or by opening an attachment sent through email.

For more information about Internet Explorer and the CV List, please see the MSDN Article, Developer Guidance for websites with content for Adobe Flash Player in Windows 8.Mitigation refers to a setting, common configuration, or general best-practice, existing in a default state, that could reduce the severity of exploitation of a vulnerability.

The following mitigating factors may be helpful in your situation:In a web-based attack scenario where the user is using Internet Explorer for the desktop, an attacker could host a website that contains a webpage that is used to exploit any of these vulnerabilities.
In addition, compromised websites and websites that accept or host user-provided content or advertisements could contain specially crafted content that could exploit any of these vulnerabilities.
In all cases, however, an attacker would have no way to force users to visit these websites.
Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to visit the website, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message or Instant Messenger message that takes users to the attacker's website. Internet Explorer in the Windows 8-style UI will only play Flash content from sites listed on the Compatibility View (CV) list.

This restriction requires an attacker to first compromise a website already listed on the CV list.

An attacker could then host specially crafted Flash content designed to exploit any of these vulnerabilities through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website.

An attacker would have no way to force users to view the attacker-controlled content.
Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to take action, typically by clicking a link in an email message or in an Instant Messenger message that takes users to the attacker's website, or by opening an attachment sent through email. By default, all supported versions of Microsoft Outlook and Windows Live Mail open HTML email messages in the Restricted sites zone.

The Restricted sites zone, which disables scripts and ActiveX controls, helps reduce the risk of an attacker being able to use any of these vulnerabilities to execute malicious code.
If a user clicks a link in an email message, the user could still be vulnerable to exploitation of any of these vulnerabilities through the web-based attack scenario. By default, Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 runs in a restricted mode that is known as Enhanced Security Configuration.

This mode can help reduce the likelihood of the exploitation of these Adobe Flash Player vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. Workaround refers to a setting or configuration change that would help block known attack vectors before you apply the update.Prevent Adobe Flash Player from running You can disable attempts to instantiate Adobe Flash Player in Internet Explorer and other applications that honor the kill bit feature, such as Office 2007 and Office 2010, by setting the kill bit for the control in the registry. Warning If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk. To set the kill bit for the control in the registry, perform the following steps: Paste the following into a text file and save it with the .reg file extension.

Click ActiveX Settings in the left-hand pane, and then deselect Disable all controls without notifications. Click OK to save your settings. Set Internet and Local intranet security zone settings to "High" to block ActiveX Controls and Active Scripting in these zones You can help protect against exploitation of these vulnerabilities by changing your settings for the Internet security zone to block ActiveX controls and Active Scripting. You can do this by setting your browser security to High. To raise the browsing security level in Internet Explorer, perform the following steps: On the Internet Explorer Tools menu, click Internet Options. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Security tab, and then click Internet. Under Security level for this zone, move the slider to High.

This sets the security level for all websites you visit to High. Click Local intranet. Under Security level for this zone, move the slider to High.

This sets the security level for all websites you visit to High. Click OK to accept the changes and return to Internet Explorer. Note If no slider is visible, click Default Level, and then move the slider to High. Note Setting the level to High may cause some websites to work incorrectly.
If you have difficulty using a website after you change this setting, and you are sure the site is safe to use, you can add that site to your list of trusted sites.

This will allow the site to work correctly even with the security setting set to High. Impact of workaround. There are side effects to blocking ActiveX Controls and Active Scripting. Many websites on the Internet or an intranet use ActiveX or Active Scripting to provide additional functionality.

For example, an online e-commerce site or banking site may use ActiveX Controls to provide menus, ordering forms, or even account statements.

Blocking ActiveX Controls or Active Scripting is a global setting that affects all Internet and intranet sites.
If you do not want to block ActiveX Controls or Active Scripting for such sites, use the steps outlined in "Add sites that you trust to the Internet Explorer Trusted sites zone".   Configure Internet Explorer to prompt before running Active Scripting or to disable Active Scripting in the Internet and Local intranet security zone You can help protect against exploitation of these vulnerabilities by changing your settings to prompt before running Active Scripting or to disable Active Scripting in the Internet and Local intranet security zone.

To do this, perform the following steps: In Internet Explorer, click Internet Options on the Tools menu. Click the Security tab. Click Internet, and then click Custom Level. Under Settings, in the Scripting section, under Active Scripting, click Prompt or Disable, and then click OK. Click Local intranet, and then click Custom Level. Under Settings, in the Scripting section, under Active Scripting, click Prompt or Disable, and then click OK. Click OK to return to Internet Explorer, and then click OK again. Note Disabling Active Scripting in the Internet and Local intranet security zones may cause some websites to work incorrectly.
If you have difficulty using a website after you change this setting, and you are sure the site is safe to use, you can add that site to your list of trusted sites.

This will allow the site to work correctly. Impact of workaround. There are side effects to prompting before running Active Scripting. Many websites that are on the Internet or on an intranet use Active Scripting to provide additional functionality.

For example, an online e-commerce site or banking site may use Active Scripting to provide menus, ordering forms, or even account statements. Prompting before running Active Scripting is a global setting that affects all Internet and intranet sites. You will be prompted frequently when you enable this workaround.

For each prompt, if you feel you trust the site that you are visiting, click Yes to run Active Scripting.
If you do not want to be prompted for all these sites, use the steps outlined in "Add sites that you trust to the Internet Explorer Trusted sites zone".   Add sites that you trust to the Internet Explorer Trusted sites zone After you set Internet Explorer to require a prompt before it runs ActiveX controls and Active Scripting in the Internet zone and in the Local intranet zone, you can add sites that you trust to the Internet Explorer Trusted sites zone.

This will allow you to continue to use trusted websites exactly as you do today, while helping to protect you from this attack on untrusted sites. We recommend that you add only sites that you trust to the Trusted sites zone. To do this, perform the following steps: In Internet Explorer, click Tools, click Internet Options, and then click the Security tab. In the Select a web content zone to specify its current security settings box, click Trusted Sites, and then click Sites. If you want to add sites that do not require an encrypted channel, click to clear the Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone check box. In the Add this website to the zone box, type the URL of a site that you trust, and then click Add. Repeat these steps for each site that you want to add to the zone.
