MS16-128: Security Update for Adobe Flash Player (3201860)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a browser plugin installed that is
affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Windows host is missing KB3201860. It is, therefore,
affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability due to a
use-after-free error. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this, by convincing a user to visit a website containing specially
crafted Flash content, to dereference already freed memory, resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
