MS15-084: Vulnerabilities in XML core services could allow information disclosure: August 11, 2015

Summary
This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. The vulnerabilities could allow information disclosure by either exposing memory addresses if a user clicks a specially crafted link or by explicitly allowing the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 2.0. However, in all cases an attacker would have no way to force users to click a specially crafted link. An attacker would have to convince users to click the link, typically by way of an enticement in an email or Instant Messenger message.

To learn more about the vulnerability, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-084.
