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 Windows kernel-mode driver due to improper handling
of objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit
these, via a specially crafted application, to execute
arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2016-3266,
CVE-2016-3376, CVE-2016-7185, CVE-2016-7191)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists in
Windows Transaction Manager due to improper handling of
objects in memory. A local attacker can exploit this,
via a specially crafted application, to execute
processes in an elevated context. (CVE-2016-3341)
