There are multiple update packages available for some of the affected software. Do I need to install all the updates listed in the Affected Software table for the software? 
Yes. Customers should apply all updates offered for the software installed on their systems. If multiple updates apply, they can be installed in any order.

Do I need to install these security updates in a particular sequence? 
No. Multiple updates for a given system can be applied in any sequence.

I am running Office 2010, which is listed as affected software. Why am I not being offered the update? 
The update is not applicable to Office 2010 on Windows Vista and later versions of Windows because the vulnerable code is not present.

I am being offered this update for software that is not specifically indicated as being affected in the Affected Software and Vulnerability Severity Ratings table. Why am I being offered this update? 
When updates address vulnerable code that exists in a component that is shared between multiple Microsoft Office products or shared between multiple versions of the same Microsoft Office product, the update is considered to be applicable to all supported products and versions that contain the vulnerable component.

For example, when an update applies to Microsoft Office 2007 products, only Microsoft Office 2007 may be specifically listed in the Affected Software table. However, the update could apply to Microsoft Word 2007, Microsoft Excel 2007, Microsoft Visio 2007, Microsoft Compatibility Pack, Microsoft Excel Viewer, or any other Microsoft Office 2007 product that is not specifically listed in the Affected Software table. Furthermore, when an update applies to Microsoft Office 2010 products, only Microsoft Office 2010 may be specifically listed in the Affected Software table. However, the update could apply to Microsoft Word 2010, Microsoft Excel 2010, Microsoft Visio 2010, Microsoft Visio Viewer, or any other Microsoft Office 2010 product that is not specifically listed in the Affected Software table.

For more information on this behavior and recommended actions, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 830335. For a list of Microsoft Office products an update may apply to, refer to the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article associated with the specific update.

Are there any prerequisites for any of the updates offered in this bulletin for affected editions of Microsoft Lync 2013 (Skype for Business)? 
Yes. Customers running affected editions of Microsoft Lync 2013 (Skype for Business) must first install the 2965218 update for Office 2013 released in April, 2015, and then the 3039779 security update released in May, 2015. For more information about these two prerequisite updates, see:

Are there any related non-security updates that customers should install along with the Microsoft Live Meeting Console security update? 
Yes, in addition to releasing a security update for Microsoft Live Meeting Console, Microsoft has released the following non-security updates for the OCS Conferencing Addin for Outlook. Where applicable, Microsoft recommends that customers install these updates to keep their systems up-to-date:

  • OCS Conferencing Addin for Outlook (32-bit) (3189648)
  • OCS Conferencing Addin for Outlook (64-bit) (3189648)

See Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 3189648 for more information.

Why is the Lync 2010 Attendee (user level install) update only available from the Microsoft Download Center? 
Microsoft is releasing the update for Lync 2010 Attendee (user level install) to the Microsoft Download Center only. Because the user level installation of Lync 2010 Attendee is handled through a Lync session, distribution methods such as automatic updating are not appropriate for this type of installation scenario.

Windows Graphics Component RCE Vulnerability – CVE-2016-3393

A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to the way the Windows GDI component handles objects in the memory. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability 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.

There are multiple ways an attacker could exploit this vulnerability:

  • In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit this vulnerability 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 getting them to click 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 file sharing attack scenario, an attacker could provide a specially crafted document file that is designed to exploit this vulnerability, and then convince a user to open the document file.

The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the Windows GDI handles objects in the memory.

The following table contains a link to the standard entry for the vulnerability in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list:

GDI+ Remote Code Execution Vulnerability – CVE-2016-3396

A remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Windows font library improperly handles specially crafted embedded fonts. An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability 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.

There are multiple ways an attacker could exploit the vulnerability:

  • In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit the vulnerability and then convince users 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 getting them to click a link in an email or Instant Messenger message that takes users to the attacker's website, or by opening an attachment sent through email.
  • In a file sharing attack scenario, an attacker could provide a specially crafted document file that is designed to exploit the vulnerability, and then convince users to open the document file. The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the Windows font library handles embedded fonts.

In the Affected Software and Vulnerability Severity Ratings table for Microsoft Office, the Preview Pane is an attack vector for CVE-2016-3396. The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the Windows font library handles embedded fonts.

Workarounds

The Microsoft has not identified any workarounds for this vulnerability.

Multiple GDI+ Information Disclosure Vulnerabilities

Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist in the way that the Windows Graphics Device Interface (GDI) handles objects in memory, allowing an attacker to retrieve information from a targeted system. An attacker who successfully exploited these vulnerabilities could use the retrieved information to circumvent Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) in Windows, which helps guard against a broad class of vulnerabilities. By itself, the information disclosures do not allow arbitrary code execution; however, they could allow arbitrary code to be run if the attacker uses one in combination with another vulnerability, such as a remote code execution vulnerability, that can leverage the ASLR circumvention.

To exploit these vulnerabilities, an attacker would have to log on to an affected system and run a specially crafted application.

The security update addresses the vulnerabilities, and helps protect the integrity of the ASLR security feature, by correcting how GDI handles memory addresses.

The following table contains links to the standard entry for the vulnerabilities in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list:

Vulnerability title

True Type Font Parsing Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability – CVE-2016-7182

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when the Windows Graphics Component improperly handles objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability could run arbitrary code in kernel mode. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting the way in which the Microsoft Graphics Component handles objects in memory, preventing unintended elevation from usermode.
