Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

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

- Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist
due to improper parsing of .pdf files. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these
vulnerabilities by convincing a user to open a specially
crafted .pdf file, resulting in the disclosure of
sensitive information in the context of the current
user. (CVE-2016-3201, CVE-2016-3215)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to
improper parsing of .pdf files. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by
convincing a user to open a specially crafted .pdf file,
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the
context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3203)
