MS16-102: Description of the security update for Microsoft Windows PDF library: August 9, 2016

Summary

This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user views specially crafted PDF content online or opens a specially crafted PDF document. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. If the current user is logged onĀ and has administrative user rights, an attacker could take control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts that have full user rights.

To learn more about the vulnerability, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-102.
