Summary

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft SharePoint Server and Microsoft Project Server software. The vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker sends a specially crafted request to an affected server. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerabilities could read content that the attacker is not authorized to read, use the victim's identity to take actions on behalf of the victim (such as change permissions and delete content), and insert malicious content in the victim's browser.
