This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows Vista host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in
Microsoft Internet Explorer due to improper handling of
objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a
specially crafted website, to execute arbitrary code in
the context of the current user. (CVE-2017-0222)

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist in
the Microsoft Server Message Block 1.0 (SMBv1) server
when handling certain requests. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit these, via a specially
crafted packet, to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-0267, CVE-2017-0268, CVE-2017-0270,
CVE-2017-0271, CVE-2017-0274, CVE-2017-0275,
CVE-2017-0276)

- Multiple denial of service vulnerabilities exist in
Microsoft Server Message Block (SMB) when handling a
specially crafted request to the server. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via
a crafted SMB request, to cause the system to stop
responding. (CVE-2017-0269, CVE-2017-0273,
CVE-2017-0280)

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in
the Microsoft Server Message Block 1.0 (SMBv1) server
when handling certain requests. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit these, via a specially
crafted packet, to execute arbitrary code on a target
server. (CVE-2017-0272, CVE-2017-0277, CVE-2017-0278,
CVE-2017-0279)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Windows
due to improper handling of shortcuts. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by
convincing a user to insert a removable drive containing
a malicious shortcut and binary, to automatically
execute arbitrary code in the context of the current
user. (CVE-2017-8464)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the
Windows Search functionality due to improper handling of
objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this, via a specially crafted SMB message,
to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-8543)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
GDI component due to improper handling of objects in
memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted
document or visit a specially crafted website, to
disclose the contents of memory. (CVE-2017-8552)
