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 :

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists due to a
failure to properly enforce permissions when loading
specially crafted DLLs. A local attacker can exploit
this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code with
administrator privileges. (CVE-2016-3346)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to a
failure to properly validate NT LAN Manager (NTLM)
Single Sign-On (SSO) requests during Microsoft Account
(MSA) login sessions. An unauthenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this vulnerability, by convincing a
user to load a malicious document that initiates an NTLM
SSO validation request or to visit a malicious website
or SMB / UNC path destination, to disclose a user's NTLM
password hash. (CVE-2016-3352)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to
improper handling of objects in memory. A remote
attacker with a domain user account can exploit this
vulnerability, via a specially crafted request, to
execute arbitrary code with elevated permissions.
(CVE-2016-3368)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to improper
handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this to cause the system to
stop responding. (CVE-2016-3369)
