Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple privilege escalation vulnerabilities exist in
the Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling
of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit these
vulnerabilities, with a specially crafted application,
to elevate privileges to full administrative rights.
(CVE-2015-2363, CVE-2015-2365, CVE-2015-2366)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of
non-initialized values in memory. An attacker can
exploit this vulnerability, with a specially crafted
application, to leak memory addresses or other sensitive
kernel information that can be used for further
exploitation of the system. (CVE-2015-2367)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of
private address information during a function call. An
attacker can exploit this vulnerability, with a
specially crafted application, to request the contents
of specific memory addresses. (CVE-2015-2381,
CVE-2015-2382)
