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 Windows host is
missing Cumulative Security Update 3096448. It is, therefore, affected
by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to
improper handling of objects in memory. A remote
attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted
website, to disclose arbitrary memory content.

- A cross-site scripting filter bypass vulnerability
exists due to improper disabling of an HTML attribute in
otherwise appropriately filtered HTTP response data. A
remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by
convincing a user to visit a website containing
specially crafted content, resulting in the execution of
arbitrary script code in the wrong security context.
