This update resolves several vulnerabilities found in versions 6 to 11 of Internet Explorer. When an attacker successfully exploits these vulnerabilities, it may lead to any of the following:

  • Information disclosure
  • Security bypass
  • Elevation of privilege
  • Remote code execution

Attackers looking to exploit these vulnerabilities may create a number of ways to successfully use these vulnerabilities. Most likely, an attacker can create a malicious site that hosts the exploit.
