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 elevation of privilege vulnerabilities exist in
the kernel-mode driver due to improper handling of
objects in memory. An authenticated, remote attacker can
exploit these, via a specially crafted application, to
run arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2016-3218,
CVE-2016-3221)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
Windows Virtual PCI (VPCI) virtual service provider
(VSP) due to improper handling of uninitialized memory.
An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via
a specially crafted application, to disclose sensitive
memory contents. (CVE-2016-3232)
