Checking Macs for the Microsoft Office 2011 Jackpot Vulnerability using Casper

As mentioned previously, the Office 2011 SP 2 14.2.0 volume licensed installer does something bad: it makes the /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011 folder and all of the enclosed files and applications readable and writable by all users on the system. This is otherwise known as setting world-writable permissions.

To help with the task of identifying which Macs are affected by this issue, I’ve written a Casper Extensions Attribute and posted it on my GitHub repo. The Extensions Attribute is available here.

    Hi Rich,
    I believe you mean 14.2.0.

      Oops. Yes, I did mean 14.2.0. Now fixed.
