Summary

This security update resolves a spoofing vulnerability that exists if Microsoft SharePoint Server does not correctly sanitize a specially crafted web request to an affected SharePoint server. This update also resolves a remote code execution vulnerability that exists in Microsoft Word software if it does not correctly handle objects in memory.

To learn more about the vulnerabilities, see Microsoft Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures CVE-2020-0760 and Microsoft Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures CVE-2020-0980.

Note To apply this security update, you must have the release version of Service Pack 2 for Office 2010 installed on the computer.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2010. It doesn't apply to the Office 2010 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student (see What version of Office am I using?).

Known issues

Some types of Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) references might be affected by this update. For more information, see FAQ for VBA solutions affected by April 2020 Office security updates.
