Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Internet Explorer installed on the remote host is
missing Cumulative Security Update 3134220. It is, therefore, affected
by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to
improper validation of input when loading dynamic link
library (DLL) files. A local attacker can exploit this,
via a specially crafted application, to execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0041)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
Hyperlink Object Library due to improper handling of
objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit this by
convincing a user to click a link in an email or Office
file, resulting in the disclosure of memory contents.
(CVE-2016-0059)

- Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due
to improper handling of objects in memory. A remote
attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing
a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the
current user. (CVE-2016-0060, CVE-2016-0061,
CVE-2016-0062, CVE-2016-0063, CVE-2016-0064,
CVE-2016-0067, CVE-2016-0071, CVE-2016-0072)

- A spoofing vulnerability exists due to improper parsing
of HTTP responses. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this, via a specially crafted URL, to
redirect a user to a malicious website. (CVE-2016-0077)

- Multiple elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist
due to improper enforcement of cross-domain policies. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this by
convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website,
resulting in an elevation of privilege. (CVE-2016-0068,
CVE-2016-0069)
