Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a browser plugin installed that is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing KB3188128. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple security bypass vulnerabilities exist that
allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose
sensitive information. (CVE-2016-4271, CVE-2016-4277,
CVE-2016-4278)

- Multiple use-after-free errors exist that allow an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2016-4272, CVE-2016-4279, CVE-2016-6921,
CVE-2016-6923, CVE-2016-6925, CVE-2016-6926,
CVE-2016-6927, CVE-2016-6929, CVE-2016-6930,
CVE-2016-6931, CVE-2016-6932)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2016-4274, CVE-2016-4275, CVE-2016-4276,
CVE-2016-4280, CVE-2016-4281, CVE-2016-4282,
CVE-2016-4283, CVE-2016-4284, CVE-2016-4285,
CVE-2016-6922, CVE-2016-6924)

- An integer overflow condition exists that allows an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2016-4287)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
