MS16-006: Security update for Silverlight to address remote code execution: January 12, 2016


This security update resolves a vulnerability in Microsoft Silverlight. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user visits a compromised website that contains a specially crafted Silverlight application. An attacker would have no way to force users to visit a compromised website. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to visit the website, typically by getting them to click a link in an email message or instant message that takes users to the attacker's website.

To learn more about the vulnerability, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-006.
