MS15-091: Cumulative Security Update for Microsoft Edge (3084525)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Microsoft Edge installed on the remote host is missing
Cumulative Security Update 3081436. It is, therefore, affected by
multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist due to improper
access to objects in memory resulting from insufficient
validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker,
using a specially crafted website, can exploit these
issues to execute arbitrary code in the context of the
current user. (CVE-2015-2441, CVE-2015-2442,
CVE-2015-2446)

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists due to
a failure to use Address Space Layout Randomization
(ASLR). An attacker can exploit this to predict memory
offsets in a call stack. (CVE-2015-2449)
