Bulletin Title and Executive Summary

Maximum Severity Rating
and Vulnerability Impact

Restart Requirement

Known Issues

Affected Software

MS16-037

Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (3148531)
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted webpage using Internet Explorer. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current user. If the current user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker could take control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

Critical
Remote Code Execution

Requires restart

---------

Microsoft Windows,
Internet Explorer

MS16-038

Cumulative Security Update for Microsoft Edge (3148532)
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Edge. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user views a specially crafted webpage using Microsoft Edge. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could gain the same user rights as the current user. Customers whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users with administrative user rights.

Critical
Remote Code Execution

Requires restart

---------

Microsoft Windows,
Microsoft Edge

MS16-039

Security Update for Microsoft Graphics Component (3148522)
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft .NET Framework, Microsoft Office, Skype for Business, and Microsoft Lync. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted document or visits a webpage that contains specially crafted embedded fonts.

Critical
Remote Code Execution

Requires restart

3148522

Microsoft Windows, Microsoft .NET Framework,
Microsoft Office, Skype for Business,
Microsoft Lync.

MS16-040

Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services (3148541)
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user clicks a specially crafted link that could allow an attacker to run malicious code remotely to take control of the user’s system. However, in all cases an attacker would have no way to force a user to click a specially crafted link. An attacker would have to convince a user to click the link, typically by way of an enticement in an email or Instant Messenger message.

Critical
Remote Code Execution

May require restart

---------

Microsoft Windows

MS16-041

Security Update for .NET Framework (3148789)
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft .NET Framework. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an attacker with access to the local system executes a malicious application.

Important
Remote Code Execution

May require restart

---------

Microsoft Windows,
Microsoft .NET Framework

MS16-042

Security Update for Microsoft Office (3148775)
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted Microsoft Office file. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could run arbitrary code in the context of the current user. Customers whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than those who operate with administrative user rights.

Critical
Remote Code Execution

May require restart

3148775

Microsoft Office,
Microsoft Office Services and Web Apps

MS16-044

Security Update for Windows OLE (3146706)
This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if Windows OLE fails to properly validate user input. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability to execute malicious code. However, an attacker must first convince a user to open either a specially crafted file or a program from either a webpage or an email message.

Important
Remote Code Execution

Requires restart

3146706

Microsoft Windows

MS16-045

Security Update for Windows Hyper-V (3143118)
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if an authenticated attacker on a guest operating system runs a specially crafted application that causes the Hyper-V host operating system to execute arbitrary code. Customers who have not enabled the Hyper-V role are not affected.

Important
Remote Code Execution

Requires restart

---------
