MS16-030: Description of the security update for Windows OLE: March 8, 2016

Summary

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

To learn more about the vulnerability, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-030.
