MS15-051: Vulnerabilities in Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers Could Allow Elevation of Privilege (3057191)

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Windows running on the remote host is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist
due to the Win32k.sys kernel-mode driver improperly
handling objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit
this to reveal private address information during a
function call, resulting in the disclosure of kernel
memory contents. (CVE-2015-1676, CVE-2015-1677,
CVE-2015-1678, CVE-2015-1679, CVE-2015-1680)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists due to the
Win32k.sys kernel-mode driver improperly handling
objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this
flaw, via a specially crafted application, to execute
arbitrary code in kernel mode. This vulnerability is
reportedly being exploited in the wild. (CVE-2015-1701)
