MS16-088: Description of the security update for Word 2013: July 12, 2016

Summary

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office that could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted Office file. To learn more about these vulnerabilities, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-088.

Note To apply this security update, you must have the release version of Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Office 2013 installed on the computer.

For a complete list of affected versions of Microsoft Office software, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article KB3170008.

Improvements and fixes

This security update contains improvements and fixes for the following nonsecurity issues:
  • When you reconvert Japanese characters in a text box in Word 2013, CPU usage goes to 100 percent.
  • When you save a document as a .pdf file in Word 2013, invisible table and text is displayed in the .pdf file.
  • If you open two documents that have the same macro name but different VBProject names in Word 2013, the MacroButton field stops working.
  • Images in email messages aren't scaled correctly in Outlook 2013 if you use high DPI monitors.
  • For Office Add-in APIs, if a table's cell vertical alignment is changed, the table is no longer considered as uniform, and some table binding APIs don't work. This update fixes this issue, and table cells' vertical alignment will no longer affect a table's uniformness.
  • Excel cells that are pasted as OLE links disappear in an email message in compose mode.
