Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Microsoft Internet Explorer. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can bypass security controls on the target system.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-1652, CVE-2015-1657, CVE-2015-1659, CVE-2015-1660, CVE-2015-1662, CVE-2015-1665, CVE-2015-1666, CVE-2015-1667, CVE-2015-1668].

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information and bypass address space layout randomization (ASLR) security protections [CVE-2015-1661].
