A Security Update has been released for Outlook 2013. In addition to resolving the vulnerability, it also contains 15 documented improvements and fixes.

Most notable fixes are;

  • Resolves the vulnerabilities mentioned in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-099 which could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted Office file.

  • After failing an initial logon, a subsequent retry may cause the following message to be incorrectly displayed:
    The Microsoft Exchange administrator has made a change that requires you quit and restart Outlook.
  • You can’t open Mail in Control Panel if you have Outlook 2013 Click-to-Run installed.
