Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the
Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper usage of
window handle thread-owned objects. A local attacker
could execute a specially crafted application in kernel
mode to take control of the system. (CVE-2014-0318).

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the
Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of
objects in memory while processing font files. A local
attacker could execute a specially crafted font file to
escalate privileges. (CVE-2014-1819)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of
objects in memory. An attacker could exploit this issue
to disclose information from kernel memory on the local
system. (CVE-2014-4064).
