MS16-062: Security Update for Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers (3158222)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple privilege escalation vulnerabilities exist in
the Windows kernel-mode driver due to a failure to
properly handle objects in memory. An authenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted
application, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0171,
CVE-2016-0173, CVE-2016-0174, CVE-2016-0196)

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists in the
Windows kernel. An authenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this, via a crafted application, to bypass
the Kernel Address Space Layout Randomization (KASLR)
feature and retrieve the memory address of a kernel
object. (CVE-2016-0175)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the
DirectX Graphics kernel subsystem due to a failure to
properly handle objects in memory. An authenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted
application, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0176)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the
DirectX Graphics kernel subsystem due to a failure to
correctly map kernel memory and to handle objects in
memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this, via a crafted application, to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2016-0197)
