Final Thoughts on the Microsoft Update

CVE-2018-8120: A remote code execution vulnerability exists when the Windows Jet Database Engine improperly handles objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could take control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
CVE-2018-8121: A remote code execution vulnerability exists in how Microsoft Office and Microsoft Wordpad handle objects in memory. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could take control of an affected system.
An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.
However, because of User Account Control (UAC), an attacker would likely require access to an administrator account to successfully exploit this vulnerability against Windows Server systems where UAC is enabled and default server settings are used.
