MS16-092: Security Update for Windows Kernel (3171910)

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

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 :

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists in the
Windows kernel due to improper validation of how a low
integrity application can use certain object manager
features. An attacker can exploit this issue to take
advantage of time-of-check time-of-use (TOCTOU) issues
in file path-based checks from a low integrity
application, allowing the attacker to modify files
outside of a low integrity level application.

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the
Windows kernel due to a failure to properly handle
certain page fault system calls. A local attacker can
exploit this, via a specially crafted application, to
disclose information from one process to another.
